This textbook aims to capture the spirit of the new fisheries management, in that it is driven by a recognition of the dynamic nature of fish populations and the application of computers and systems analysis to fisheries problems. It contains detailed numerical methods for parameter estimation, confidence bounds, and the formulation of harvesting strategies. The book builds upon the three themes in the subtitle. Choice refers to alternative management actions and alternative models. Dynamics reviews basic concepts of ecology and the interactions between fish and fishermen, as the latter respond to biological variability and to economic opportunity and regulation. Uncertainty describes the all-pervasive feature of fish stocks assessment. This text, written by two authorities in the field, should also become a standard reference in the area for professionals. A diskette including relevant programs is also included with this book.

Review:

"..useful in fishery science, population dynamics and fisheries management courses, especially at the undergraduate level...a valuable resource to scientists engaged in fish stock assessment and to fishery managers who wish to advance the state of their art."
(Journal of Natural Resources Modeling)
"...It is an excellent book and should be read by students and practitioners of stock assessment and management of fisheries...I enjoyed the book and commend it."
(ICES Journal of Marine Science)
"Risk and uncertainty have generally received short shrift in the fisheries literature. Hilborn and Waters take a big step toward overcoming this deficiency...I strongly recommend it to serious students and teachers as well as to practicing managers of fisheries for guidance in making more effective marketing decisions."
(Bioscience)
"I will certainly recommend this as one book fisheries scientists must read."
(NAGA, The ICLARM Quarterly)
