Fish Ecology, Evolution, and Exploitation: A New Theoretical Synthesis

Ken H. Andersen

Abstract

Fish are one of the most important global food sources, supplying a significant share of the world's protein consumption. From stocks of wild Alaskan salmon and North Sea cod to entire fish communities with myriad species, fisheries require careful management to ensure that stocks remain productive, and mathematical models are essential tools for doing so. This book is an introduction to the modern size- and trait-based approach to fish populations and communities. It covers the theoretical foundations, mathematical formulations, and real-world applications of this powerful new modeling method ... More

Keywords: fish evolutionary ecology, global food source, protein consumption, fisheries management, population biology, ecological theory, fishing
