Editorial Reviews


"A science-steeped volume that tells the story of finding the clearer window into fisheries we have today through the research itself...this data empowers fellow biologists, NGOs and policymakers to begin chipping away at the problems that face fisheries worldwide." 

"Accurate data on catches is critical...thanks to [The Global Atlas of Marine Fisheries]...we have a much better knowledge of how much fish is being caught from the ocean."
(Journal of Fish Biology)

"Excellent fundamental background reading: from the sobering position of worldwide fish stocks, the economic and technical conditions, regulatory options up to individual country profiles, the reader is furnished with a rich treasure of information...For all those closely interested in or associated with the sea, this atlas is strongly recommended." 

"Highly informative and intellectually compelling...Pauly and Zeller's Atlas will provide considerable grist for thoughtful discussion, reflection, and argument."
(Ocean Yearbook)

"Uses new methods to present a truer picture of world fish stocks and their exploitation, and explains what these methods are."
(Marine Quarterly)

"This book is the first to provide detailed fishery catch data covering literally the entire world's oceans...The atlas will be an indispensable resource and should inspire the management of marine fisheries in ways that will restore their productivity as opposed to accentuating their decline.
(Conservation Biology)

"The word monumental is overused but rarely has a book more deserved it. An extraordinary account of the state of the world's fisheries. Essential reading."
(Callum Roberts, Professor of Marine Conservation, University of York, England)

"This packed volume offers an all-you-can-eat buffet of information on global fisheries catches: comprehensive and provocative."
(Boris Worm, Professor in Marine Conservation Biology, Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada)

"This timely publication makes a very significant contribution to our understanding of what is actually happening with the world's fisheries and effectively makes the case that improved management requires more holistic approaches and less institutional and disciplinary fragmentation."
(John Tanzer, Director, Global Marine Program, World Wildlife International)
