EcoCheck Newsletter
Ecosystem-based fisheries management newsletter.
Ecosystem-based fisheries management newsletter
This newsletter describes ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM). While the standard approach to fisheries management has been to focus on one species at a time, EBFM characterizes a greater number of ecosystem components, including the physical and chemical properties of systems. Here, we explore the current and potential applications of the ecosystem-based approach. The newsletter was a collaboration between EcoCheck and NOAA Chesapeake Bay Office.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
