Contents Notes
pt .1. Context. Admit the problem -- Why is an ecosystem approach now strongly heralded and merited? -- Being audacious -- Framework for scientific information to support EBFM -- When does it make sense to do EBFM? -- pt. 2. Making EBFM operational: technical considerations. Ecosystem indicators -- Expanding the stock focus: what we should have been doing yesterday -- A systemic focus: what we can do now -- Assessing risk: a different view of ecosystem information -- pt. 3. Institutional considerations. Why most fisheries biologists become amateur social scientists -- Management institutions regarding EBFM -- It's all about tradeoffs. Brings together a wide range of information - ecology, fisheries, oceanography, mathematics, risk-assessment, resource economics, and institutional dynamics - to show how we can better understand, address trade-offs in, and implement successful management of marine resources. Provides useful tools and ideas to the fisheries scientific community, resource managers, policy makers, and stakeholders.
