This important book examines seafood ethics, policy, and governance, with an integrated analysis of capture fisheries and aquaculture production methods, typically treated separately in previous works.

Following an introductory chapter, innovative conceptual and methodological frameworks are presented by the book’s expert author team, together with a set of ethical and sustainability indicators for the evaluation of the impacts of seafood production, trade and consumption on global society and ecosystems.
The book also contains international case studies and concludes with a discussion of the implications of the research findings on global food security and sustainability.

Seafood Ethics, written by some of the world’s leaders in the subject, is a thorough review of the current situation, providing vitally-important information for all those involved in fisheries, aquaculture production and trade, those involved in governance and policy decisions and involved in the ethical issues surrounding these subjects. All libraries in universities and research establishments where fisheries, aquaculture, ethics environmental sciences, and economics are studied and taught should have copies of this very valuable publication.
