I was reconsidering my response to the query about what texts might
cover the necessary information for non-fisheries science majors who are
taking courses in Marine Ecology or Sociology that involves fishing
cultures, or fisheries management issues in general.

Indeed, the Harrison and Parsons - Fisheries Oceanography text is the
most up to date, in depth science referenced text on the shelves - for
those wanting an in-depth  assessment of where fisheries science has
been, and where it has to go in order to fulfill real world demands.

On the other hand, if the students are more people oriented, and want to
know how we have come to the present state of chaos in fisheries
management, and what issues head the list, then the "Out of Fishermen's
Hands..." by myself, Menakhem Ben-Yami, and Russ McGoodwin would be a
very appropriate historical overview, both readable, multi-cultural in
its roots, and Global in perspectives, with lots of pictures of people
hard at work - feeding the world's ever-increasing demands...

Take a look at my website, and download the .pdf Brief and order
instructions for more insight. The various reviews we have recieved have
been very satisfying, and personal responses from friends and colleagues
have been very positive.

The Buy Now (PayPal) link has worked well for those wishing to pay via
credit card from all around the globe. So far, no real issues.

"Out of Fishermen's Hands..." is a real deal - about real people -
and it does gets people thinking...

We are working on the SOLUTIONS volume as I write this - with Chapters
from good folk from around the Globe, that provide very powerful
messages ands insights into the issues of politics and decision-making
surrounding many major cultural collapses associated with modern
management, particularly painting lines on maps - overlain over a more
dynamic aquatic environment - well connected to many externalities.
