Comparative Evaluations of Innovative Fisheries Management

The Comparative Evaluations of Innovative Solutions in European Fisheries Management (CEVIS) Project (2006-2009) was an exploration of how science can aid policy decisions. CEVIS teamed up biologists, economists, and other social scientists to evaluate four fisheries management innovations being considered for Europe: participatory approaches; rights-based regimes; effort control; and decision-rule systems. Comparative Evaluations of Innovative Fisheries Management brings the CEVIS project full circle by providing further insights into the role of science in policy. Eds.: Kjellrun Hiis Hauge and Douglas Clyde Wilson - Springer forlag.

Larval Fish Nutrition

Nutrition is particularly important in the healthy development of fish during their early-life stages. Understanding the unique nutritional needs of larval fish can improve the efficiency and quality of fish reared in a culture setting. This book explores the nutritional requirements, developmental physiology, and feeding and weaning strategies that will allow aquaculture researchers and professionals to develop and implement improved culture practices. Birgitta Nordberg, Kristin Hamre, Hipolito Fernandez-Palacios and Marisol Izquierdo - Wiley 2011, 448 pp.

Large Marine Ecosystems of the North Atlantic

The LMEs of the world annually produce 95% of useable marine biomass. Across the coastal margins of the North Atlantic, LMEs are presently being subjected to stresses from overfishing, climate change, coastal eutrophication, toxic algae blooms, and degradation of critical habitats, resulting in significant loss of socioeconomic benefits to the countries around the rim of the North Atlantic. This volume on changing states of North Atlantic LMEs is drawn from a symposium sponsored by IUCN, IMR, NOAA and ICES. Eds.: K. Sherman and H.R. Skjoldal, 2002 - Elsevier.

Cruising for Krill - In the Southern Ocean with G.O. Sars

Scientists from the IMR have participated in CCAMLR since 1982, but 2008 is the first time we have sent our own ships to do research in the Southern Ocean. The main aim was to investigate the krill resources, the acoustic characteristics of krill, as well as the general marine ecosystem in the area. The expedition was named AKES (Antarctic Krill and Ecosystem Studies). Eds.: Svein Iversen, Sigmund Myklevoll, Kjartan Mæstad and Leif Nøttestad.
