Hello - I thought you might find this book from Blackwell Publishing

Marine Fisheries Ecology
Simon Jennings, Michel Kaiser, and John Reynolds

I am writing to let you know that Marine Fisheries Ecology is now available
for sale, and we are offering it as a 60-day examination copy for professors
to review for course adoption as well for a limited time!

This topical and exciting textbook describes fisheries exploitation,
biology, conservation and management, and reflects many recent and important
changes in fisheries science. These include growing concerns about the
environmental impacts of fisheries, the role of ecological interactions in
determining population dynamics, and the incorporation of uncertainty and
precautionary principles into management advice. The book draws upon
examples from tropical, temperate and polar environments, and provides
readers with a broad understanding of the biological, economic and social
aspects of fisheries ecology and the interplay between them. As well as
covering 'classical' fisheries science, the book focuses on contemporary
issues such as industrial fishing, poverty and conflict in fishing
communities, marine reserves, the effects of fishing on coral reefs and
by-catches of mammals, seabirds and reptiles. The book is primarily written
for students of fisheries science and marine ecology, but should also appeal
to practicing fisheries scientists and those interested in conservation and
the impacts of humans on the marine environment.

- Clear and accessible text written for students of fisheries science and
marine ecology.

- Describes fisheries exploitation, conservation and management in tropical,
temperate and polar environments.

- Broad coverage of 'classical' fisheries science
