    Abstract

    In the words on the cover of this book “it offers readers a broad understanding of the current methods and theory for sustainable exploitation of fisheries resources, and introduces recent findings and technological developments.” This is a fair description of its scope which is covered in just under 250 pages. Inevitably for a concise volume with such a breadth of material to include, some topics are dealt with in a very cursory manner and there are notable omissions, but it makes a good read, especially for those interested in learning about how fisheries are managed in the seas around Japan.
