One billion people around the world rely upon fish as their primary-and in many cases, their only-source of protein. At the same time, increasing demand from wealthier populations in the U.S. and Europe encourages dangerous overfishing practices along coastal waters. Fish for Life addresses the problem of overfishing at local, national, and global levels as part of a comprehensive governance approach-one that acknowledges the critical intersection of food security, environmental protection, and international law in fishing practices throughout the world. Third publication in the "http://www.aup.nl/mare">MARE Publication Series

From the Back Cover:

Veelzijdig perspectief op het probleem van overbevissing

Overbevissing van de wereldzeeën is een groot maatschappelijk probleem. Hoewel sommige landen vangstquota instellen worden vele vissoorten met uitsterven bedreigd. Visbheer is hét voorbeeld van falend beleid. De complexiteit van het probleem wordt vergroot door het grote aantal belanghebbenden. De visseriij beïnvloedt niet alleen de marine ecologie, maar is ook van belang voor de mensen die leven van visvangst of voor wie vis een belangrijk onderdeel vormt van de dagelijkse maaltijd. Het visbeheer moet zich richten op al deze verschillende belangen, maar ook de ethische kant in ogenschouw nemen.
'Fish for life' is een interdisciplinaire studie in de 'MARE Publication Series' naar vis- en waterbeheer en richt zich vooral op de visvangst in derde wereldlanden. De auteurs benaderen het visserijprobleem vanuit een nieuw perspectief: 'interactive governance'. Visbeheer heeft alleen kans van slagen, zo menen zij, als het aansluit bij de dynamiek en complexiteit van de huidige wereld en stevig verankerd is in een debat over proincipes en ethiek.

Bij dit boek is een praktijkboek voor beleidsmakers verschenen onder de titel 'Fisheries Governance - A Guide for Practice' (isbn 9789059720794, o.a. te vinden via http://www.fishgovnet.org/publications)

The contributors assess the need for, and the impact of, the hard choices facing governments and international institutions faced with unpopular but necessary decisions on fishing quotas to protect local economies and endangered marine species. In an up-to-date overview of the challenges and concerns of fisheries worldwide, the contributors outline the difficulties faced by the local economies and policymakers, as well as the dangers of the shrinking natural resources. An interdisciplinary survey addressing the problems of overfishing worldwide, and the best way forward toward good ecological practice and global cooperative governance
