"Managing Small-scale Fisheries" looks beyond the scope of conventional fishery management to alternative concepts, tools, methods, and conservation is, for example, broader emphasis on ecosystem management and participatory decision-making. Managing Small-Scale Fisheries by Fikret Berkes, , available at Book Depository with free delivery worldwide. There is, for example, broader emphasis on ecosystem management and participatory decision-making. This book focuses on small-scale fisheries in developing countries: the people who fish, their communities, and the linkages within and outside the fisheries systems. Chapers address the following issues: key concepts in fisheries management. Small-scale fisheries make up a large proportion of world's fisheries, both by catch and participation. Effective management is essential to ensure access to fish for food and income. Covering social and economic aspects of the fishery management and governance challenge, this book provides guidance on innovative and alternative management.

Small-scale fisheries make up a large proportion of world's fisheries, both by catch and participation. Effective management is essential to ensure access to fish for food and income. Covering social and economic aspects of the fishery management and governance challenge, this book provides guidance on innovative and alternative management measures and methods for small-scale fisheries. This dissertation explores alternatives to managing small-scale fisheries in the Caribbean. Specifically, it demonstrates the importance of livelihoods, fisher knowledge, resilience, and institutions in fisheries management and planning; and develops a draft fishery management plan using the Management Objective Driven (MOD) fishery. This paper provides an analytical framework for the management and development of coastal small-scale fisheries in developing countries. In a brief review the basic management concepts developed for single-species fisheries are presented and their appropriateness is examined for the management and development of small-scale multi-species fisheries. In recent decades, there has been a shift in small-scale fisheries management from centralised government systems to more decentralised approaches, including the local communities [1] [2] [3][4.

This book will help a new generation of scientists, policy-makers, and small-scale fisheries actors make the fundamental connections between different disciplines in science, traditional knowledge, and policy to guide a collective process towards sustainable small-scale fisheries. The book contains an inspiring collection of practical cases. There are few simple solutions for the problems that fisheries science and management address anywhere in the world. This is particularly so for small-scale fisheries, which this book is primarily about. However, fresh perspectives, methods, and approaches offer new opportunities for small-scale fisheries management. A Fishery Manager’s Guidebook Second Edition Edited by Kevern L.
