This book serves as an advanced text on fisheries and fishery population dynamics and as a reference for fisheries scientists. It provides a thorough treatment of contemporary topics in quantitative fisheries science and emphasizes the link between biology and theory by explaining theassumptions inherent in the quantitative methods. The analytical methods are accessible to a wide range of biologists, and the book includes numerous examples. The book is unique in covering such advanced topics as optimal harvesting, migratory stocks, age-structured models, and size models.

Editorial Reviews

"Over the last two decades the fields of fish population dynamics and stock assessment have seen major advances; concomitantly, fisheries worldwide have declined in productivity owing to overfishing, habitat degradation, and climate change. This suggests that strategies for improved fisheriesassessment and management will require greater overall understanding of linkages among demographic, environmental, and anthropogenic processes that underlie the dynamics of exploited populations. This book provides an up-to-date synthesis and coherent framework with which to explore and comprehendthese theoretical and practical issues. ... [It] clearly fills a void where no up-to-date textbooks exist ... [and will also] be useful to a wider audience of fishery scientists, mathematical ecologists, conservation biologists, population dynamicists, and resource managers involved in research..."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
