Designed for beginning-level readers who have not yet completed more technical coursework in math and science, this book introduces the breadth of the fisheries conservation and management process—rather than the depths and details of specific fisheries conservation and management settings. < D> It provides a broad background—including basic information on fish, their habitats, and people who fish for them; provides numerous examples of both successes and failures, strengths and weaknesses of particular conservation or management strategies and programs (See Chs. 8, 12); and focuses on the laws that govern the management process and management activities—(i.e., regulating harvest, the use of hatcheries in fisheries management, habitat- related management) and on the types of management and conservation activities that are used.
