Fish Behaviour and the Management of Freshwater Fisheries

  • K. O’Hara


The management of freshwater fish for human benefit is undertaken on differing levels throughout the world. In the industrialised countries, freshwater fish are often principally exploited for recreational purposes, whereas in developing countries food production is paramount. In this latter case the detail of what constitutes a fishery, and what are the requirements of the user (Larkin 1980), may be secondary to the more formal management objectives of assessing the fish yield of a water body. Nevertheless, all managers must be aware of the behaviour of their target species, whether this relates to, for example, how vulnerable the fish are to angling, or the success of an artificial reef in acting as a fish attractor.
