The book describes the conceptual basis and current management practices for
freshwater fisheries of North America. This third edition is written by an
array of new authors who bring novel and innovative perspectives. The book
incorporates recent technological and social developments and uses pertinent
literature to support the presented concepts and methods.

Covered topics include the process of fisheries management, fishery
assessments, habitat and community manipulations, and the common practices
for managing stream, river, lake, and reservoir fisheries. Chapters on
history, population dynamics, assessing fisheries, regulation of fisheries,
use of hatchery fish, and the process and legal framework of fisheries
management are included along with innovative chapters on scales of
fisheries management, communication and conflict resolution, managing
undesired and invading species, ecological integrity, emerging multispecies
approaches, and use of social and economic information.

The book is intended for use in fisheries management courses for
undergraduate or graduate students, as well as for practicing fisheries
