Special Issue Information
Defining and implementing measures for the sustainable management of fisheries has become imperative owing to the management status of fish stocks and given the current changes in environmental features and their influence on fish populations worldwide. The stock status of a variety of selected fish species is to be evaluated by regional researchers and/or expert working groups based on the regional/country-specific needs, mostly in connection with the socio-economic and ecological importance of the respective stock. Typically, the assessment is based on available data, best available methods assessment techniques and/or knowledge of the life history of the species being assessed. After stock status has been assessed, fisheries managers are responsible for determining, evaluating and adopting management measures. As these measures will define the health situation of different ecosystems and assure the sustainable harvest of different fish stocks in the future. In this regard, it is considered particularly vital that this Special Issue includes a Section devoted to single-and-multi-species fisheries management models, management strategy evaluation, stock assessment modeling, data-limited methods for exploited and non-targeted species, habitat changes relate to fishing pressures, and identification of key environmental factors affecting the spatial distribution of species.
