Abstract:

To maintain thriving, sustainable fisheries in the Laurentian Great Lakes, an understanding of the numerous and complex ecological, societal, economic, management, and policy issues surrounding them is critical. This incisive study provides a collaborative, interjurisdictional, and multi-use perspective, one shaped by the USA and Canada together as part of their shared governance of these waters. An informed look at the Great Lakes fisheries and their ecosystems, this book examines both the threats they have faced and the valuable opportunities they provide for basin citizens and industries. Divided into four sections (the Great Lakes Region, Great Lakes Fisheries, Case Studies of Key Fisheries, and Outlook for the Future) this is a valuable and up-to-date tool for students, researchers, policymakers, and managers alike.
