Product description

Comprehensive multidisciplinary analysis of Australia's marine resource management challenges

Australia's marine resources are now worth more than the gross value of all Australian agricultural production. Their multifaceted nature, and the human use of them, present increasing challenges for marine resource managers in Australia. Written by recognised Australian experts, Marine Resources Management provides a comprehensive, coherent and synthesised analysis of the overlapping and intersecting marine resource challenges faced by Australia.
Its multidisciplinary approach addresses the increasingly complicated task of determining and implementing appropriate marine management arrangements for Australia's varied marine resources.

The clear and accessible style of this unique edited work makes it invaluable for decision-makers, students in the field and the numerous industries which are active in the marine environment.
