Compiled in honour of the work and achievements of Professor Gordon Munro of the University of British Columbia, Canada, this exceptional volume of research serves as both a valuable reference tool and fitting tribute to a man whose work has shaped the discipline.
Divided into four sections, the text includes coverage of:
Property Rights and Fisheries Management
Capital Theory and Natural Resources
Game Theory and International Fisheries
Applied Fisheries Economics and Management
The book is an important addition to the resources of all fisheries economists, managers, scientists and fish biologists. Libraries in universities and research establishments where these subjects are studied and taught should have copies on their shelves.
