Report of Working Group 19 on Ecosystem-based Management Science and its Application to the North Pacific

, , ,


This report provides a summary of the emerging consensus on indicators of marine ecosystems, and makes recommendations applicable to North Pacific waters of PICES interest. In addition, it attempts to take a broader view of indicators for EBM of marine systems rather than the narrower application to fisheries management (even though most research to date has focussed on this narrower application).
