This new edition of Sustainable Fishery Systems maintains the “systems” perspective of the first edition, with a considerably updated and expanded initial chapter on the topic. It will update the coverage in existing chapters of rights-based management (and community-based management) and of ecosystem-based management. New chapters will look at the ‘bigger picture’ around fisheries, covering links of fisheries to (1) Marine protected areas, (2) Biodiversity conservation, and (3) Integrated (multi-sectoral) management.
