The foundations of fly-fishing history, literature, and mechanics are firmly anchored in the disciplines of science, yet until now there has been no comprehensive work that integrates scientific components into the sport of angling for trout and other game fish. The Science of Fly-Fishing fills that void. Stan L. Ulanksi presents the basic elements of the physical and biological sciences in a way that helps the reader see their practical application to fishing. The Science of Fly-Fishing is designed for anglers—whether they have any formal background in science or not—who are curious about the relevance of science to their sport. The angling-related scientific concepts revealed in the book require no more of the reader than a good dose of common sense and a willingness to expand his or her fly-fishing knowledge. Ulanski’s thoughtful explorations of topics such as the physics of fly casting, the angler’s environment, the diet of trout, and the role of lake geology and biology will help anglers reach a greater understanding of and appreciation for the natural aquatic home of their quarry. Stan L. Ulanski is Professor of Geology and Environmental Science at James Madison University.

More science and less art leads to bigger fish and fewer tales Most anglers rely on advice from fishing buddies or books by well-known but unscientific anglers. Here is a book that distills the science of fish behavior into easy-to-follow advice on how to catch fish in any situation. Describing how feeding behavior in fish changes in response to fluctuations in dissolved oxygen, turbulence, turbidity, temperature, light, noise, and other factors, Bagur advises you on how to respond, recommending specific flies, baits, rigs and tactics.

This topical and exciting textbook describes fisheries exploitation, biology, conservation and management, and reflects many recent and important changes in fisheries science. These include growing concerns about the environmental impacts of fisheries, the role of ecological interactions in determining population dynamics, and the incorporation of uncertainty and precautionary principles into management advice. The book draws upon examples from tropical, temperate and polar environments, and provides readers with a broad understanding of the biological, economic and social aspects of fisheries ecology and the interplay between them. As well as covering 'classical' fisheries science, the book focuses on contemporary issues such as industrial fishing, poverty and conflict in fishing communities, marine reserves, the effects of fishing on coral reefs and by-catches of mammals, seabirds and reptiles. The book is primarily written for students of fisheries science and marine ecology, but should also appeal to practicing fisheries scientists and those interested in conservation and the impacts of humans on the marine environment. particularly useful are the modelling chapters which explain the difficult maths involved in a user-friendly manner describes fisheries exploitation, conservation and management in tropical, temperate and polar environments broad coverage of 'clasical' fisheries science emphasis on new approaches to fisheries science and the ecosystem effects of fishing examples based on the latest research and drawn from authors' international experience comprehensively referenced throughout extensively illustrated with photographs and line drawings

"This is simply an outstanding publication..." Don Haddon, New Zealand Wilderness " of the best New Zealand books on our sport yet published" Fish and Game New Zealand " one of the most exceptional books on angling published in New Zealand" Harvey Clark, New Zealand Herald "the best combination of the 'how-to and why to' of trout fishing for New Zealand anglers ever available" Dr R. M. McDowall, Fish and Game New Zealand "The credentials of the men who have written this new book are impeccable" Tony Orman, The Marlborough Express Two expert anglers - one a trout scientist and the other an outstanding photographer - combine forces in this new book which will help anglers understand, and catch more and bigger, trout. In a mixture of plain language science, fishing anecdotes and illustrations, they explain how an understanding of trout behaviour, senses, biology and habitat, the seasons and the physical environment will make angling more productive and rewarding. Chapters cover the senses of trout, their feeding behaviour, response to lures and anglers, habitats and feeding niches, fishing strategies, sports fisheries conservation and management and much more. Colour photographs and diagrams illustrate the science and anecdotes and clarify points made in the text. The authors weave these topics into a rich tapestry that will raise anglers' awareness of the ways of trout and of the environment in which they fish - the result is a unique angling book. While the authors live in the South Island of New Zealand, the book draws on their experience and research from throughout the world, and will be relevant in all fisheries where brown, rainbow and brook trout as well as quinnat salmon occur. Dr John Hayes is New Zealand's foremost trout biologist. He is a senior research scientist at Cawthron Institute, Nelson, and was previously with the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research. He has extensive research experience with trout and salmon fisheries in New Zealand and also has studied in North America. Presently he leads multidisciplinary research teams studying angling pressure on New Zealand's wild and scenic backcountry rivers, and predictive modelling of trout and salmon response to habitat change. Les Hill is the co-author and photographer of Images of Silver, Stalking Trout and Catching Trout (with Graeme Marshall),and Stalking Stillwaters (with Grant Winter). His photographs and popular articles are regularly featured in fishing magazines in New Zealand, Australia and the United States.

Fisheries science in North America is changing in response to a changing climate, new technologies, an ecosystem approach to management and new thinking about the processes affecting stock and recruitment. Authors of the 34 chapters review the science in their particular fields and use their experience to develop informed opinions about the future. Everyone associated with fish, fisheries and fisheries management will find material that will stimulate their thinking about the future. Readers will be impressed with the potential for new discoveries, but disturbed by how much needs to be done in fisheries science if we are to sustain North American fisheries in our changing climate. Officials that manage or fund fisheries science will appreciate the urgency for the new information needed for the stewardship of fish populations and their ecosystems. Research organizations may want to keep some extra copies for a future look back into the thoughts of a wide range of fisheries professionals. Fisheries science has been full of surprises with some of the surprises having major economic impacts. It is important to minimize these impacts as the demand for seafood increases and the complexities of fisheries management increase.

The problems of controlling fishing effort are reviewed. Any method should satisfy certain criteria - maintaining the productivity of the resource, economic performance and equity (or social needs). The methods of achieving these objectives are reviewed; they include the setting of catch limits, direct control of fleet capacity (e.g. restricting the number of fishing units), indirect measures (mesh size, closed areas), financial measures and the establishment of property rights to fishing areas or quantities of fish. The advantages and disadvantages of each approach are discussed in the light of the established criteria and appropriate techniques are given for six specific types of fisheries.
