Download Climate Variability, Climate Change and Fisheries by Michael H. Glantz PDF

By Michael H. Glantz

Even if typical and unspecific, Dr. Glantz brings up loads of matters approximately adjustments that would be required in fishing thoughts and kit. This booklet is straightforward to learn and provocative. because of the "uncertainty issue" relating to alterations in ocean flow styles, there's a lot now not but recognized (even because the booklet date), regardless of scientist's top efforts to do predictive modeling. This publication issues to components that would require additional study, and is without doubt one of the few books written addressing this subject.

Monterey fishermen continued to can fish until 1957, but reduction ceased by 1950. Most of the fish canned in Monterey during the 1950s were trucked in from southern California. Fishermen received an agreed-upon price regardless of the quantity landed, but had to pay the cost of trucking. The trucking rates and prices were negotiated between the union and the remaining two Monterey buyers in the late 1950s. 00 per ton. 00 per ton. 50 (see the monthly California Department of Fish and Game reports for the period 1945-65).

Response of the industry to collapse is to diversify, to target other stocks, and to develop new fisheries. Success depends on there being other stocks to turn to and on ingenuity in their utilization. A further problem is to keep transition costs to a tolerable level. This requires great flexibility in the harvesting, processing, and marketing sectors. Present methods for fishery management in the US are clearly ineffective in matching catching capacity to potential resources, a key to minimizing response.

Present methods for fishery management in the US are clearly ineffective in matching catching capacity to potential resources, a key to minimizing response. An underlying question is whether there will continue to be alternative stocks as the climate continues to change.
