This textbook aims to capture the spirit of the "new fisheries management," in that it is driven by a recognition of the dynamic nature of fish populations and the application of computers and systems analysis to fisheries problems. It contains detailed numerical methods for parameter estimation, confidence bounds, and the formulation of harvesting strategies. The book builds upon the three themes in the subtitle. Choice refers to alternative management actions and alternative models. Dynamics reviews basic concepts of ecology and the interactions between fish and fishermen, as the latter respond to biological variability and to economic opportunity and regulation. Uncertainty describes the all-pervasive feature of fish stocks assessment. This text, written by two authorities in the field, should also become a standard reference in the area for professionals. A diskette including relevant programs is also included with this book.
