Quantitative fisheries stock assessment: Choice, dynamics and uncertainty

Quantitative fisheries stock assessment: Choice, dynamics and uncertainty Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries, 2, 177-186 (1992) Book reviews R. Hilborn and C.J. Waiters Chapman & Hall, London, 1992 ISBN 0-412-02271-0, £38.00, $29.95 Hard cover, pp. xv + 570, 57 tables, 170 figures Contains an IBM format 5~/4-inch 1.2 Mbyte floppy disc with 199 files This book is intended as a textbook and reference for courses in fisheries stock assess- ment and management. It is aimed at advanced undergraduates or professionals but does not, the authors claim, require advanced calculus or linear algebra. Such claims are common for many textbooks - this is one occasion where I can agree. The contents are divided into four sections: (I) Introduction (i.e. the need for analysis); (II) Behaviour of Fisheries; (III) Estimation of Parameters and (IV) Managing Fisheries. The authors state at the outset that they regard Sections II and IV as the most important and that Section III covers material that is often covered elsewhere. Nevertheless, Section III is by far the largest portion of the book and gives a complete flavour that makes the whole very appealing. What many readers will find poorly represented (as the authors acknowledge) are tropical stock assessment and the analysis of length data. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries Springer Journals
