Summary "Commercial and recreational fisheries often compete for the same fish stock. Together these two groups compete with those who wish to promote a 'look but don't take' attitude to fish. And in some cases, traditional fishers have special demands that can be inconsistent with the needs of other groups. The limited nature of fish stocks can lead to arguments between these different groups. Too often the arguments are based on a wrong use of economic data. Access to and sharing of fisheries resources need not be based on economic data and principles, but if they are, the proper approach must be used. This book sets out in clear language, with simple examples, the correct economic method to used. The aim is to improve decision-making so that everyone can enjoy a seafood meal, drop a line in the water or observe fish in a natural environment without unnecessary conflict."--Back cover
