Future directions of fisheries management: An ecosystem-based approach
This newsletter describes current and future directions of 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. The newsletter explores the current and potential applications of the ecosystem-based approach. This newsletter is a collaboration between EcoCheck and NOAA's Chesapeake Bay Office.
