Summary
Through more than 30 original case studies related to contemporary
conservation and management issues in fisheries, this new book challenges
students to develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that will
serve them as future natural resource professionals. Intended to encourage
students to go beyond the "information" level of many science texts, these
case studies have no "right answers." Many of the cases are presented in a
dilemma format, where students are asked to assess information from a
variety of sources, find additional information as needed, and propose and
evaluate alternative solutions. Cases are approached from a variety of
dimensions (biological, ecological, political, cultural, and socioeconomic)
and stakeholder perspectives. Spiral binding allows the book to lie flat for
easy reference during classroom discussions and activities.

Summary
 
Through more than 30 original case studies related to contemporary
conservation and management issues in fisheries, this new book challenges
students to develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills that will
serve them as future natural resource professionals. Intended to encourage
students to go beyond the information level of many science texts, these
case studies have no right answers. Many of the cases are presented in a
dilemma format, where students are asked to assess information from a
variety of sources, find additional information as needed, and propose and
evaluate alternative solutions. Cases are approached from a variety of
dimensions (biological, ecological, political, cultural, and socioeconomic)
and stakeholder perspectives. Spiral binding allows the book to lie flat for
easy reference during classroom discussions and activities.
 
This companion Instructor's Guide pairs each full case study with a detailed
set of teaching notes that cover suggested lesson plans, supplemental
reference materials, and a companion CD containing case-linked PowerPoints
that include all tables and digital figures from the cases.
