To order:

The spiny dogfish (Squalus acanthias) is one of the most abundant shark
species in the world. For over a century it has been both reviled and
valued, has supported commercial fisheries in the Pacific and Atlantic
Oceans, and has been overexploited in both. As the only shark species to
recover from over-fishing, its responses and recovery trajectories are of
great interest to conservationists and fishery managers. 

The book's 34 chapters compile current knowledge of dogfish, their ecology,
and their 
management worldwide. It reviews historical fisheries, evaluates past and
current management strategies, and provides new biological and ecological
information from both the single species and ecosystems perspectives.  It
confirms the urgency of consideration of the human dimensions of management
as part of efforts to protect dogfish where it is threatened while providing
sustainable fisheries.
