Contents Notes
Human interventions and climate change have altered the productivity of the large marine ecosystems (LMEs) of the Pacific and put the region under tremendous stress. Fortunately both the global environmental community and local interests are sensitive to these pressures and keen to assess, monitor, and mitigate them through concerted action. Timely and informative, this book contains a wealth of recommendations to guide future management practices for the region. The eight case studies illustrate the emerging trends in changing biomass yields and offer useful insights for future studies. With the initiation of science-based management practices, this book demonstrates how these LMEs can provide a more sustainable source of economic growth, improved food security, and nutritional benefits than is presently being realized.
