The book is an invaluable worldwide reference source for students and researchers who are concerned with marine environmental science, fisheries, oceanography and engineering and coastal zone development.

  • Covers regional issues that help countries find solutions to environmental decline that may have already developed elsewhere
  • Provides scientific reviews of regional issues, thus empowering managers and policymakers to make progress in under-resourced countries and regions
