#ForewordFriday: Oceans of Krill Edition

#ForewordFriday: Marine Ecosystem-Based Management Edition

Julia Wondolleck and Steven Yaffee are hopeful about marine ecosystem-based management (EBM).

#ForewordFriday: Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries

While it has long been clear that the world’s oceans are in trouble, the lack of reliable data on fishery catches has obscured the scale, and nuances, of the crisis. Based on an unprecedented 10-year research study by the world's foremost fisheries experts, the Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries will fundamentally change the way the world thinks about ocean exploitation and management. It is the first and only book to provide accurate, country-by-country fishery data.
