Perspectives on Canadian marine fisheries management( )

3 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes management approaches in Northern cod, lobster, Atlantic herring, Atlantic salmon, and snow crab Atlantic fisheries and the contrasting approaches to finfish and invertebrate management. The important role of the marine environment in determining resource productivity is also emphasized. Other topics covered include Arctic marine fisheries, emphasizing the Northwest Territories; the British Columbia Pacific salmon and herring fisheries; federal assistance to the Canadian fishing industry; the reliability of scientific advice on fisheries management; a discussion of the Kirby and Pearse inquiries; and aquaculture
Atlantic fishes of Canada by W. B Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atlantic Fishes of Canada is intended as a replacement volume for Fishes of the Atlantic Coast of Canada, which was published in 1966 as Bulletin 155 of the Fisheries Research Board of Canada. The major portion of the present book is concerned with the biology, distribution, and/or economics of the fishes occurring off our Atlantic coast. Most accounts are well documented, necessitating an extensive reference list, which we hope will prove useful in itself. A checklist and keys are also presented for students or anyone concerned with the kinds and identification of fishes making up the fauna of the region. Many changes have occurred since 1966, not only in the state of our knowledge of the fauna and its biology but also in the management of the resource. Changes in the management are well documented in the section 'Atlantic Coast Fisheries and Fisheries Research in the Last 25 Years.'

Shrimps of the Pacific coast of Canada by T. H Butler( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A total of 85 species of shrimps, belonging to eight separate families of decapod crustaceans, live in salt water off the Pacific coast of Canada. Six species support minor regional fisheries within Canada's extended fisheries jurisdiction. This publication is a comprehensive work on shrimps in the waters off British Columbia, containing a set of color plates, a description of a new shrimp species, new taxonomic data, a section on shrimp parasites, a gazeteer and a partial synonymy for all local species

Physiological bases of phytoplankton ecology( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a collection of 18 essays aimed at the elucidation and exposition of the physiological first principles that underlie phytoplankton ecology. It is based on a successful Advanced Study Institute of which the object was to expose field phytoplankton ecologists to the most recent advances made by laboratory-based physiologists in their understanding of algal photosynthesis, metabolism, and growth, and also to review the physiological principles on which these advances are founded. A second theme is the attempt to incorporate this new knowledge into the interpretation of measurements made on natural assemblages of phytoplankton in the field. The subject matter treated includes the light reactions of photosynthesis; the dark reactions of photosynthesis; respiration and photorespiration; numerical analysis of photosynthesis experiments; application of radioactive tracer techniques to metabolic studies;dynamics of the cell cycle and synchrony ;nitrogen metabolism;nutrient uptake kinetics;the relationship between assimilation and growth; adaptation of the metabolic parameters to environmental change; and the physiological and morphological bases of competition and succession
