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 that is shaped by the United states and 
Canada together as part of their shared governance of these waters. 
This book offers an informed look at the Great Lakes fisheries and their 
ecosystems, as the contributors examine 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, Fisheries case studies, and outlook for the 
Future—this is a valuable and up-to-date tool for students, researchers, 
policymakers, and managers alike.
