Winner of a 2004 Whitley Award

Marine Mammals: Fisheries, Tourism and Management Issues brings together contributions from 68 leading scientists from 12 countries to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date review on the way we manage our interactions with whales, dolphins, seals and dugongs. The book examines how we have fared conserving the world’s marine mammal populations, with a focus on the key issues of fisheries and tourism.

From a unique southern hemisphere perspective, the authors consider how science informs the culling debate, how wild fisheries and aquaculture interact with marine mammal populations and how we might manage the effects of whale, dolphin and seal watching industries. The authors also address other issues such as the way in which ethics, genetics, acoustics, ecosystem models and pollution influence the management and conservation of marine mammals.

Marine Mammals is an invaluable and accessible resource for all those involved with marine mammals, including scientists, managers, policy makers, industry representatives and students.

About the Author:

Review:

“I found this book to be very well written and interesting. It will be very useful to managers and policy makers particularly in the southern hemisphere, to students everywhere, and to researchers guilty of not keeping up with the southern literature." (M.O. Hammill, Marine Mammal Science)

"Overall this is a very comprehensive book on the variety of issues in the conservation and management of marine mammals and will be of interest and relevance to a wide audience, including scientists, wildlife and marine managers, policymakers and members of relevant industry." (Kelly Waples, Australian Zoologist)

“This book is a substantial source of information and inspiration for everyone concerned with the problem of managing human activities at sea in ways that are compatible with the continued survival and well-being of marine mammals.”
(Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara, FINS)

“This book accomplishes its purpose of providing a comprehensive review of the management challenges of human and marine mammal interaction....the editors and authors have combined forces to present information that nonetheless serves as an invaluable and accessible reference volume for all those involved with marine mammals, including scientists, managers, policymakers, industry representatives, and students.” (Dagmar Fertl, Aquatic Mammals)

“This book is a substantial source of information and inspiration for everyone concerned with the problem of managing human activities at sea in ways that are compatible with the continued survival and well-being of marine mammals.” (Giuseppe Notarbartolo di Sciara, FINS)
