Fluctuations and declines in marine fish populations have caused growing concern among marine scientists, fisheries managers, commercial and recreational fishers, and the public. "Sustaining Marine Fisheries" explores the nature of marine ecosystems and the complex interacting factors that shape their productivity. The book documents the condition of marine fisheries today, highlighting species and geographic areas that are under particular stress. Challenges to achieving sustainability are discussed, and shortcomings of existing fisheries management and regulation are examined. The volume calls for fisheries management to adopt a broader ecosystem perspective that encompasses all relevant environmental and human influences. "Sustaining Marine Fisheries" offers new approaches to building workable fisheries management institutions, improving scientific data, and developing management tools. The book recommends ways to change current practices that encourage overexploitation of fish resources. It will be of special interest to marine policymakers and ecologists, fisheries regulators and managers, fisheries scientists and marine ecologists, fishers, and concerned individuals.

This book provides a comprehensive attempt to adopt an 'integrated' interdisciplinary approach to the study of fisheries. Fisheries are discussed as holistic 'systems', with emphasis on their structure, operation and dynamics. The book's interdisciplinary approach is applied to an analysis of problems faced in pursuing 'sustainable fisheries', with emphasis on six dominant themes: sustainability, uncertainty, complexity, conflict, fishing rights and the nature of management. Within this discussion, several major directions in current fishery thinking are explored, notably the precautionary approach, the ecosystem approach, co-management, and robust management for resilient fisheries.

Following the introductory section (Section 1), Section 2 of this paper profiles the wide range of environmental certification and trade initiatives, including certification and claims made about environmental sustainability used in the marketing of seafood and fish products. Section 3 then provides some discussion of the benefits of certification to different stakeholder groups, and the constraints to greater uptake in developing countries. In particular, it considers the extent to which schemes might be viewed as being 'successful' in terms of realizing different benefits. The section concludes with some 'crystal-ball gazing' about the future prospects for certification, based on experiences in recent years. Section 4 discusses some possible solutions as to ways of increasing certification in developing countries. A final section (Section 5) provides some conclusions about certification, and some recommendations for future UNEP activities in relation to certification and eco-labeling.

What has happened to the salmon resource in the Pacific Northwest? Who is responsible and what can be done to reverse the decline in salmon populations? The responsibly falls on everyone involved - fishermen, resource managers and concerned citizens alike - to take the steps necessary to ensure that salmon populations make a full recovery. This collection of papers examines the state of the salmon fisheries in the Pacific Northwest. They cover existing methods and supply model approaches for alternative solutions. The editors stress the importance of input from and cooperation with all parties involved to create a viable solution. Grass roots education and participation is the key to public support - and ultimately the success - of whatever management solutions are developed.A unique and valuable scientific publication, "Sustainable Fisheries Management: Pacific Salmon" clearly articulates the current state of the Pacific salmon resource, describes the key features of its management, and provides important guidance on how we can make the transition towards sustainable fisheries. The solutions presented in this book provide the basis of a strategy for sustainable fisheries, requiring society and governmental agencies to establish a shared vision, common policies, and a process for collaborative management.

In the spring of 2007, National Geographic warned, "The oceans are in deep blue trouble. From the northernmost reaches of the Greenland Sea to the swirl of the Antarctic Circle, we are gutting our seas of fish." There were legitimate grounds for concern. After increasing more than fourfold between 1950 and 1994, the global wild fish catch reached a plateau and stagnated despite exponential growth in the fishing industry. As numerous scientific reports showed, many fish stocks around the world collapsed, creating a genuine global overfishing crisis. Making Seafood Sustainable analyzes the ramifications of overfishing for the United States by investigating how fishers, seafood processors, retailers, government officials, and others have worked together to respond to the crisis. Historian Mansel G. Blackford examines how these players took steps to make fishing in some American waters, especially in Alaskan waters, sustainable. Critical to these efforts, Blackford argues, has been government and industry collaboration in formulating and enforcing regulations. What can be learned from these successful experiences? Are they applicable elsewhere? What are the drawbacks? Making Seafood Sustainable addresses these questions and suggests that sustainable seafood management can be made to work. The economic and social costs incurred in achieving sustainable resource usage are significant, but there are ways to mitigate them. More broadly, this study illustrates ways to manage commonly held natural resources around the world-land, water, oil, and so on-in sustainable ways.

This text considers how to develop an international environmental regime that represents a consensus of most world peoples so that its rules will be obeyed; which allows for sufficient variance from universal norms so as not to disadvantage indigenous peoples and other small-holders; which illustrates how to properly use science to provide the basis of a sustainable whaling regime; and which demonstrates sufficient civility in negotiation to promote co-operation on other, perhaps more important, environmental issues.

Recent years have witnessed a surge of interest in the application of the principles of genetics to conservation and the sustainable management of fish resources. The realization of the genetic basis of many fisheries management problems is growing, at a time when the world catch from fisheries is approaching the maximum sustainable level and all levels of biodiversity are threatened. Based on scientific information on tropical and temperate ecosystems and their fish resources, this work aims to provide a detailed account of the genetic profiles of different fish populations, molecular genetic marking techniques, factors affecting genetic diversity, and genetic manipulation techniques. The book sets out to apply conservation and biotechnology to protect natural fish populations and wild fish gene pools, while addressing the issues concerning biosafety and sustainable management.

The Earth's oceans are overfished, despite more than fifty years of cooperation among the world's fishing nations. There are too many boats chasing too few fish. In Saving Global Fisheries, J. Samuel Barkin and Elizabeth DeSombre analyze the problem of overfishing and offer a provocative proposal for a global regulatory and policy approach. Existing patterns of international fisheries management try to limit the number of fish that can be caught while governments simultaneously subsidize increased fishing capacity, focusing on fisheries as an industry to be developed rather than on fish as a resource to be conserved. Regionally based international management means that protection in one area simply shifts fishing efforts to other species or regions. Barkin and DeSombre argue that global rather than regional regulation is necessary for successful fisheries management and emphasize the need to reduce subsidies. They propose an international system of individual transferable quotas that would give holders of permits an interest in the long-term health of fish stocks and help create a sustainable level of fishing capacity globally.
