About this book

This book really began in 1980 with our first microcomputer, an Apple II +. The great value of the Apple II + was that we could take the computer programs we had been building on mainframe and mini-computers, and make them available to the many fisheries biologists who also had Apple II + 's. About 6 months after we got our first Apple, John Glaister came through Vancouver and saw what we were doing and realized that his agency (New South Wales State Fisheries) had the same equipment and could run the same programs. John organized a training course in Australia where we showed about 25 Australian fisheries biologists how to use microcomputers to do many standard fisheries analyses. In the process of organizing this and subĀ­ sequent courses we developed a series of lecture notes. Over the last 10 years these notes have evolved into the chapters of this book.

Reviews

"..useful in fishery science, population dynamics and fisheries management courses, especially at the undergraduate level...a valuable resource to scientists engaged in fish stock assessment and to fishery managers who wish to advance the state of their art."
(Journal of Natural Resources Modeling)
"...It is an excellent book and should be read by students and practitioners of stock assessment and management of fisheries...I enjoyed the book and commend it."
(ICES Journal of Marine Science)
"Risk and uncertainty have generally received short shrift in the fisheries literature. Hilborn and Waters take a big step toward overcoming this deficiency...I strongly recommend it to serious students and teachers as well as to practicing managers of fisheries for guidance in making more effective marketing decisions."
(Bioscience)
"I will certainly recommend this as one book fisheries scientists must read."
(NAGA, The ICLARM Quarterly)
