This book brings together fisheries and governance experts from across the globe who present case studies on a broad spectrum of the internationally shared fisheries that inhabit diverse freshwater and marine ecosystem types. The International Fisheries Section was established to support and promote worldwide fishery educational, organizational, and research efforts and to increase North American fishery scientists’ awareness of the interests, needs, and contributions of their colleagues worldwide.

Designed for beginning-level readers who have not yet completed more technical coursework in math and science, this book introduces the breadth of the fisheries conservation and management process—rather than the depths and details of specific fisheries conservation and management settings.
