Provident Sea by D. H. Cushing

Book Description

The Provident Sea describes the history of fish stock management (including whales and seals). The need for management arose from the industrialization of capture. Hence the preindustrial fisheries are covered, in particular the old cod fishery on the Grand Bank and the herring fishery in the North Sea. The origins of fishery science and of whaling science are described, as it the development of science and institution until 1965 in fisheries, whaling and sealing. In the 1960s and 1970s the second industrialization took place over the world ocean mainly through the activities of the Russians and Japanese. The consequence of this was the 'law of the Sea' Conference and the eventual management by the coastal state. This book traces, on the basis of the original scientific material, the history of the management of 'the provident sea' up to when problems of overexploitation have had dramatic effects upon stocks.
