Crisis in the World's Fisheries: People, Problems, and Policiesby James R Mcgoodwin
Synopses & Reviews
“McGoodwin critically examines accepted fisheries management practices and advocates alternative approaches that would situate the social and economic needs of fishers at the forefront of policy considerations. Yet, the book is much more than that. As the title indicates, McGoodwins book is sweeping in its coverage. It addresses virtually every aspect of fisheries—cultural, economic, political, and environmental. . . . It is a good introductory book for persons, no matter their discipline or profession, who are interested in natural resource management. . . . On the other hand, McGoodwin has provided a valuable service for all by pulling together in one place an extensive and timely review of the fisheries literature.”—Natural Resources and Environmental Administration
“It is difficult to disagree with McGoodwins overall argument: contemporary fisheries management must change. His book provides a broad review of fisheries management policies and an important prescription for an ailing industry and way of life. It is written in a style that commends itself to fishers, fisheries managers, and academics alike. It is an important book whose audience is sure to extend far beyond the bounds of maritime anthropologists.”—American Anthropologist
For over twenty years, an alarming trend has emerged in the world's fisheries: there are too many fishers chasing too few fish. This book provides a broad overview and fundamental reassessment of fisheries management policies around the world.
