This book was written for a general audience interested in fish, fishing, and conservation. Fish and fishing can be examined from many perspectives, beyond scientific understandings and traditional efforts to find the elusive maximum sustainable yield. Fish matter. We struggle to live our lives in ways that respect the many values of fish and respect the perspectives of others with differing values. How we understand, value, and deal with fish depends on culture and reflections.
This open educational resource is designed for use by undergraduate and graduate ocean science, natural resource, fisheries and wildlife, and environmental policy students enrolled in a ten-week academic quarter. The purpose of this project is to provide students and non-law professionals with a freely accessible, clearly written guide to support engaging and effective learning. As such, the book serves as a gateway and an invitation to become a well informed, committed and involved ocean citizen as well as to explore the field beyond our course study.
