  • Description:
    "The first edition of Fisheries Management for Fishermen, published in 1994, was an effort to unlock the mysteries of fisheries management in light of the numerous changes in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1996, fisheries management underwent another significant change with the passage of the Sustainable Fisheries Act, a statute that amended the national fisheries statute, the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The 1996 Sustainable Fisheries Act added three new National Standards, amended by catch provisions, and shifted attention from fisheries harvest to fisheries habitat with the inclusion of essential fish habitat provisions. Like the first edition of Fisheries Management for Fishermen, the second edition, entitled Understanding Fisheries Management, focuses on federal marine fisheries management as mandated by the Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act, commonly known as the Magnuson Act. Fishery biology principles and the need for public involvement, however, apply to fishery management at the state level as well"--National Sea Grant Digital Library publication website.
