Description

In recent years, people have become increasingly aware of the dynamic nature of fishery systems. These systems include not only the fish and their environment, but also people and their associated social and economic institutions and communities. As a result of the challenges created by ever-changing fisheries, the Canadian Global Change Program of the Royal Society of Canada formed a Fisheries Panel of nine people in 1996. The mandate of the panel was to write an authoritative and comprehensive review of the implications of physical, biological, economic, and sociopolitical changes for Canadian marine fisheries and to present options for how to deal with those changes.
