This title includes a number of Open Access chapters.Fisheries management and conservation draws on science in order to find ways to protect fishery resources so sustainable exploitation is possible. Modern fisheries management often involves regulating when, where, how, and how much fishermen are allowed to harvest to ensure that there will be fis

About the Editor

Professor William Hunter III has been fishing and studying fish since he was a very small child, as he grew up on a small lake, enjoying what the lake had to offer year round. He transformed his love of fishing into the academic study of marine ecology, with a master's degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo with a specific focus in ecology and evolution. He has done extensive research in the fields of limnology and the effect of water quality on aquatic life. His work is currently funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, where he oversees research into the effects of a municipal sewer project on the water chemistry and aquatic life of the New York state lake where he lived during his childhood.
