Short Course: Ecosystem approach to fisheries

Short Course: Ecosystem approach to fisheries | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it
Maintaining healthy ecosystems and a vibrant fishing sector is of paramount importance to all coastal regions in the world. Making sure that the interests of the fishery sector are considered and represented versus the claims and interests of other user groups, is one of the tasks of the fisheries manager. The ecosystem approach takes the wider ecosystem and its interactions with fisheries into consideration.
