New AFS Book: Managing the Impacts of Human Activities on Fish Habitat
Managing the Impacts of Human Activities on Fish Habitat:
The Governance, Practices, and Science
Published June 2015 (AFS Symposium 78)
Fish species and their habitat are under threat from the impact of overfishing, pollution, and development. This book reviews the science, governance, and practice of assessing and managing these impacts, including use of ecosystem-based approaches (EBA). Describes innovations in use of EBA in managing economic development impacts, and highlights key features and requirements such as the identification of “safe margin” thresholds across spatial scales in support of the long term sustainability of productive capacity of aquatic ecosystems.
