Worldwide Crisis in Fisheries by Colin W. Clark
Book DescriptionThe world's marine fisheries are in trouble, as a direct result of overfishing and the overcapacity of fishing fleets. Despite intensive management efforts, the problems still persist in many areas, resulting in many fisheries being neither sustainable nor profitable. Using bio-economic models of commercial fisheries, this book demonstrates that new management methods, based on individual or community catch quotas, are required to resolve the overfishing problem. Uncertainty about marine systems may be another factor contributing to overfishing. Methods of decision analysis and Bayesian inference are used to discuss risk management and the precautionary principle, arguing that extensive marine reserves may be the best way to protect fisheries, alongside a controlled catch quota system. This book will be of interest to environmental scientists, economists and fisheries managers, providing novel insights into many well-known but poorly understood aspects of fisheries management.

Books By Author Colin W. Clark
Mathematical Bioeconomics, Hardback (June 2010)
Mathematical Bioeconomics: The Mathematics of Conservation analyzes the economic forces underlying the misuse of biological renewable resources and discusses economically effective methods of resource management. It shows how rigorous mathematical modeling can be used to solve the complex problems of bioeconomics.
Worldwide Crisis in Fisheries, Paperback (January 2007)
New management programs are suggested, to improve the state of the world's fisheries.
Dynamic State Variable Models in Ecology, Paperback (March 2000)
This is an introduction to a set of powerful and extremely flexible modelling techniques, starting at "square one" and continuing with chosen applications. The text also explains how to construct, test, and use dynamic state variable models in a wide range of contexts in evolutionary ecology.
Dynamic Modeling in Behavioral Ecology, Paperback (January 1989)» View all books by Colin W. Clark
Describes a flexible technique for the modeling of behavior, based on evolutionary principles. The technique employs stochastic dynamic programming and permits the analysis of behavioral adaptations wherein organisms respond to changes in their environment and physiological state. This book shows how to construct and use dynamic behavioral models.
