Progressive Engineering Practices in Marine Resource Management

Book Description

There is overwhelming evidence that marine resources are being overexploited throughout the world. In an effort to conserve the natural resources of the world’s oceans, new methods, technologies, and practices in fishery and marine resource management must be implemented. Progressive Engineering Practices in Marine Resource Management combines scientific, ecological, and engineering approaches involved in the sustainable management of natural resources. Featuring coverage on key topics relating to environmental management, maritime spatial planning, sustainable fisheries, and waste water treatment, this publication is a critical reference source for fishery associations, scientists, environmental management authorities, and water management directorates interested in emerging technologies and innovative resource management techniques.
