Inland Fisheries Management in North America
This revised edition updates a major college text and professional reference book. Authored by 42 eminent educators and fisheries managers, it reflects the rapid changes in managing inland fisheries since the first edition, especially in applying ecosystem approaches and adopting larger spatial scales for management.
The book covers fishery assessments, habitat and community manipulations, and common practices for managing stream, river, lake, and anadromous fisheries. Chapters on history; ecosystem management; management processes; communications with the public; introduced, undesirable, and endangered species; and the legal and regulatory frameworks provide the context for modern fisheries management.
