This is a fisheries management reference on bonefish and tarpon, two significant sport fishes, that includes aspects of coastal marine environment, fishery sectors, population dynamics, stock assessment, and environmental policy. Ault (marine biology and fisheries, U. of Miami) first includes chapters reviewing and assessing the management and ecology of the nine significant world fisheries for tarpon and bonefish. He then includes six chapters on biology and life history dynamics, population dynamics, and resource ecology. Following a few contributions on lore and appeal of fishing for tarpon and bonefish, seven chapters address ecosystem-based management and sustainable fisheries.
