By Andrew I. L. Payne, John Cotter, Ted Potter

This well timed ebook brings readers brand new at the wide variety of advances made in fisheries technology because the ebook in 1957 of at the Dynamics of Exploited Fish Populations (Beverton and Holt), seemed by way of many fisheries scientists as essentially the most vital books on fisheries but published.

Traditional fishery matters lined contain historical declines and adjustments in fishing fleets, fisheries administration and inventory checks, data-poor occasions, simulation and modelling of fished shares, fisheries economics, assessing reproductive capability and dispersal of larvae, fisheries for sharks and rays, and use of marine expertise. also, comparable topics of accelerating significance now that ecological techniques to administration are coming to the fore are awarded. They comprise benthic ecology, atmosphere adjustments associated with fishing, existence heritage conception, the results of chemical substances on fish copy, and use of sounds within the sea by means of marine lifestyles. numerous chapters provide stimulating philosophical dialogue of the various arguable parts nonetheless existing.

This major booklet, edited via Andy Payne, John Cotter and Ted Potter and containing contributions through world-renowned fisheries scientists, together with many established at Cefas (where Beverton and Holt's unique paintings used to be conducted) is a necessary buy for fisheries managers and scientists, fish biologists, marine scientists and ecologists. Libraries in all universities and study institutions the place fisheries and organic sciences are studied and taught tend to desire copies of this landmark publication.

27 for plaice (Cotter, 2001). Over this period, there were notable changes in the fishing effort expended by these fleets in the North Sea. As stated above, effort by English beam trawlers expanded from the early 1980s to a peak in the early 1990s, but plummeted in recent years. As a result, overlapping commercial and survey cpue data pre-1987 and post-2000 (for August– September) were so limited that the analysis was restricted to the years 1987–2000. English otter trawlers have shown a dramatic reduction in hours fished in the North Sea, from 454 898 in 1982 to 90 676 in 2005.

Nevertheless, it is likely that the northern North Sea witnessed a more robust increase in the fishing power of steam trawlers (cf. Wimpenny, 1953). ERA 3 – 1950s AND 1960s: STEAM GIVING WAY TO DIESEL I consider it again likely that from 1930 to the early 1950s, there was little change in the average fishing power of British steam trawlers fishing the North Sea. In particular, the fleet of the 1950s was mostly old: as late as 1952 no fewer than 637 vessels of the British near- and middle-water fleeta of 817 vessels >70 feet long had been built before 1921 (Robinson, 1996).

Still driven by steam, those vessels replaced coal with a fuel much easier and cleaner to handle, less bulky and at the time still relatively cheap. Soon thereafter, all new steam trawlers were built as oil burners, and many old coal burners were converted (King and Pulfrey, 1991; Robinson, 2000b). Generally, though, oil-fired steam trawlers had a short life-span because of competition with a segment of the trawling fleet that, although it had already existed before the war, now underwent rapid technological innovations – motor trawlers.
