Special Issue "Marine Fisheries and Ecosystem Modeling"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 May 2021).
Interests: fisheries oceanography; fisheries ecology; ecology of fishes and other aquatic organisms in relation to their sustainable exploitation; scientific advice to fisheries management
The sustainable exploitation of marine fish populations is an important issue worldwide, due to the globally increasing impacts of fishing efforts and climate change. It is essential to evaluate how both these factors affect the dynamics of natural resources in order to develop adaptation policies that aim to reduce their impacts. There is a general lack of information on the mechanisms governing marine ecosystems, which needs to be addressed. This Special Issue will focus on recent trends in this topic, assessing the role of the different modelling methodologies available, and exploring innovative approaches in support of marine fisheries management, suggesting alternative pathways to be adopted in order to limit the vulnerability of marine species to environmental changes and fishing activities.
