A thorough understanding of freshwater fisheries management is vitally important for all occupiers and managers of freshwater fisheries. Without a working knowledge of fisheries management valuable assets can be wasted or underdeveloped.
The second edition, like the first, is essentially a practical guide for anyone involved in freshwater fisheries management in the temperate regions. Although it is primarily concerned with fisheries management in the British Isles, the principles set out will have applications in many other countries. Some sections have been completely rewritten and others added to reflect the developments in this field over the last ten years.
