Summary "This publication is an essential guide to understanding the role of spatial analysis in the sustainable development and management of fisheries and aquaculture. The publication is an easy-to-understand publication that emphasizes the fundamental skills and processes associated with geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing. The required spatial data and computer hardware and software are outlined, as well as the considerations necessary to implementing a GIS. Current issues, status and applications of GIS and remote sensing to aquaculture, inland fisheries and marine fisheries are described to illustrate the capabilities of these technologies. Emerging thematic issues having a spatial context in fisheries and aquaculture in the near future are also described, and finally useful clues as how best to overcome challenges to accomplishing GIS work are addressed. This publication is organized in two parts: the first is a summary version for administrators and managers, while the second contains the entire document intended for professionals in technical fields and academics. The full document is available on the CD-ROM that accompanies the summary version of the publication."--Publisher's description
