Abstract

This introductory chapter begins by describing trends in the world’s marine capture fisheries and outlines what are the unique features of fisheries resources and what are the critical issues faced in optimizing their exploitation. Adaptive strategies in response to natural variability will increasingly enable the sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources and development of effective response to optimize fisheries. Multidisciplinary monitoring for real-time information and nowcasting is required to manage fisheries resources which are inherently variable. The aim and concept of this book as well as the structure and relationship of each theme are also briefly introduced.
