Handbook of Fish Biology and Fisheries, Volume 2: Fisheries by Paul J. B. Hart, John D. Reynolds

By Paul J. B. Hart, John D. Reynolds

Fresh many years have witnessed powerful declines in fish shares all over the world, amid becoming issues in regards to the impression of fisheries on marine and freshwater biodiversity. Fisheries biologists and bosses are consequently more and more asking approximately points of ecology, behaviour, evolution and biodiversity that have been commonly studied through humans operating in very separate fields. This has highlighted the necessity to paintings extra heavily jointly, that allows you to aid be sure destiny luck either in administration and conservation.

The Handbook of Fish Biology and Fisheries has been written by means of a world staff of scientists and practitioners, to supply an outline of the biology of freshwater and marine fish species including the technology that helps fisheries administration and conservation.

This quantity, subtitled Fisheries, specializes in a variety of subject matters, together with the historical past of fisheries technology, tools of trap, advertising, economics, significant versions utilized in inventory tests and forecasting, surroundings affects, marine safe components and conservation. It builds on fabric in quantity 1, Fish Biology, which levels from phylogenetics and biogeography to body structure, recruitment, lifestyles histories, genetics, foraging, reproductive behaviour and group ecology.

Together, those books current the cutting-edge in our figuring out of fish biology and fisheries and may function priceless references for undergraduates and graduates searching for a entire resource on a wide selection of themes in fisheries technology. they're going to even be helpful to researchers who want updated experiences of subject matters that impinge on their fields, and determination makers who have to take pleasure in the clinical heritage for administration and conservation of aquatic ecosystems.

Example text

In most bottom trawl fisheries there are regulations on minimum mesh size in the bag of the trawl, also called the cod-end, to enable proper selectivity of target species. Trawl selectivity is also affected by the number of meshes in the circumference of the trawl bag, the length of the extension, the length of selvage ropes relative to trawl bag and extension, twine thickness, catch size, and mesh geometry. ) (Isaksen and Valdemarsen 1989) or catch size-dependent selectivity (Suuronen et al. 1991).

To limit bird mortality, different methods are used such as shooting lines during the night, which mainly reduces the capture of albatross but is less effective for petrel. It is also possible to fit lines with lead weights, aimed to obtain a faster sinking, or to scare the bird away from the line. The two most efficient methods consist in either using a setting tunnel or trailing a ‘bird scarer’ made of a line with pendants parallel to the longline (Løkkeborg 1998). source of food (Bjordal and Løkkeborg 1996; Nambiar and Sudari Pawiro 1998).
