Characteristics of Shark Bycatch in the Pelagic Longline Fishery off the Southeastern US, 1992-1997
Sharks of the Open Ocean: Biology, Fisheries, and Conservation
Merry D. Camhi, Ellen K. Pikitch, Elizabeth A. Babcock
This important and exciting title represents the first authoritative volume focussed on pelagic (open ocean) sharks as a group. Virtually every pelagic shark expert in the world has contributed to this landmark publication which includes the latest data and knowledge on pelagic shark biology, fisheries, management, and conservation.
Pelagic sharks face unprecedented levels of exploitation in all the world's oceans through both direct fisheries and by-catch, and effective management for these species is contingent upon solid science and data, which this book brings together for the first time. All those involved in shark biology will need to have a copy of this book.
