Proceedings of the Thirtieth Annual Symposium on Sea Turtle Biology and Conservation 24 30 April 2010 Excerpt :

"With over 500 participants from over 60 countries, the success of the symposium was reflected in the coming together of ideas in research and lessons in conservation from a diverse range of individuals and groups, both at the local and regional/global scale. Over 400 abstracts were received and a total of 376 were presented after a careful review process by the Programme Committee, overseen by Programme Chairs Matthew Godfrey and Brendan Godley and the Programme Coordinator DuBose Griffin.

Report of the FAO Expert Consultation on the Economic Social and Institutional Considerations of Applying the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management Rome 6 9 June 2006 Excerpt :

The Expert Consultation was convened by FAO in order to elaborate a framework for technical guidelines on the economic, social and institutional considerations (e.g. information processes and approaches) needed in the application of the ecosystem approach to fisheries management (EAF). The Expert Consultation provided specific guidance for the finalization of a technical paper based on a revision and elaboration of the background document presented and produced a detailed outline for the preparation of new technical guidelines. The Expert Consultation also noted the need to clearly explain the current interpretation of the term EAF, expressing the ideas of a holistic, participatory and integrated approach to fisheries management. The Expert Consultation recognized that the move towards EAF would, in many instances, be accomplished on an incremental and adaptive management basis in view of each specific context being addressed.

Behavior of Marine Fishes Excerpt :

Understanding fish behavior in relation to capture processes in marine fisheries is of fundamental importance to reducing bycatch and discards, and to enhancing marine fisheries conservation efforts. A thorough understanding of this allows commercial fishers to more effectively capture target species while reducing the catch of unwanted species. Behavior of Marine Fishes: Capture Processes and Conservation Challenges provides the reader with principles, patterns, and characteristics on fish behavior and fish capture processes using several types of important commercial fishing gears. The book also highlights conservation challenges facing the marine capture fisheries in efforts to maintain sustainable use of marine resources and to reduce negative impacts to the marine ecosystem. This volume, with contributions from leading applied fish behaviorists and fishing gear technologists from around the world, will be a valuable reference for researchers, fishing gear technologists, fisheries managers, students, and conservationists.

Sea Turtles of the Eastern Pacific Excerpt :

The oceanographic conditions that make this an epicenter of sea turtle activity promote massive artisanal and industrial fishing efforts that, coupled with illegal harvesting of eggs and turtles, have led to declines of several turtle populations in the region. The essays and stories in Sea Turtles of the Eastern Pacific describe for the first time the history of this exploitation, as well as recent sea turtle conservation initiatives and scientific research in the region.
