Book Contents

Fisheries and Aquaculture theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Engineering and Technology Resources in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias.

Fisheries are a major life support system and the main purpose of this theme on Fisheries and Aquaculture is to provide baseline information and latest knowledge at the dawn of this century to facilitate vital fisheries recovery before their irreparable collapse.

This Theme on Fisheries and Aquaculture is divided into five topics. It starts with discussions on major issues and challenges in “Harvesting the Seas”, with emphasis on the role and importance of the fisheries sector and its environment, and introduces trends and perspectives in marine fisheries, including allocation of use rights, subsidies, and port management. The next two topics present an in-depth and detailed knowledge on fish and other aquatic living resources that are commercially exploited and/or farmed. The third topic on Inland Fisheries presents salmonid fish, eels, shad, whitefish and smelt, carp, perch, pike and bass, tilapia, frog, and crustaceans. The fourth topic presents a comprehensive review of trends and perspectives in Aquaculture: Principles and Prospects. The fifth topic on Economics of Fisheries and Aquaculture reviews the latest views and concepts useful to apprehend the fisheries management regime, including a comparative static economic theory and a dynamic theory of fishery, spatial bioeconomic dynamics and role of international law in the management of marine fisheries, rights-based and community fisheries management, aquaculture economics, and game theory and fisheries. These five volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College Students Educators, Professional Practitioners, Research Personnel and Policy Analysts, Managers, and Decision Makers, NGOs and GOs.

Patrick Safran born in France (1957), graduated from Lille University, France with a D.Sc. in Biology (1987) and Ph.D. in Natural Science (1995). He also has a Ph.D. in Agriculture from Tohoku University (1990), Japan and an MBA from Knightsbridge University (1998), UK. He is currently (2000) Project Specialist (Natural Resources) to the Forestry and Natural Resources Division West of the Agriculture and Social Sectors Department West at the Asian Development Bank (ADB), where he is Principal Officer in charge of natural resources management projects including fisheries projects in Vietnam and Sri Lanka, forestry projects in Vietnam, and a livestock project in Nepal. He has also been nominated Focal Point for coastal and aquatic resources management to monitor and to promote the implementation of ADB Policy on Fisheries. Before his assignment at ADB, he handled the Asia-Pacific realm as well as Latin America, as Regional Manager for the French government-owned Centre de Coopération Internationale en Recherche Agronomique pour le Développement (CIRAD). He was responsible for public and external relations for these regions, and was in charge of the formulation, appraisal, implementation and coordination of development-oriented research projects. He started his career as Professor in the newly established Université Française du Pacifique (UFP) in French Polynesia. His research topics mainly focused on ecosystem theory and numerical ecology. P. Safran is member of several professional societies and President of the Société Franco-Japonaise d’Océanographie
