A Guide for Ecological Risk Assessment of the Effects of Commercial Fishing (ERAEF)

Summary
Wild capture marine fisheries are, by definition, dependant on the natural processes of marine ecosystems. Traditionally single species stock assessments have focussed on the dynamics of individual species. However, there is increasing awareness that fisheries assessments should not be separated from their supporting ecosystem. This report reviews ecosystem risk assessessment methods and describes in detail the method evolved in Australia by CSIRO.
