"...the author has done a magnificent job of bringing together and reviewing the literature about the evolution, systematics, distribution, ecology, biology, life history, and fisheries of the fishes found within the antarctic region of the Southern Ocean....I can only say that this is an excellent book and that anyone interested in antarctic fishes should have it available as a reference. It is also excellent as a history of a fishery (or better a series of fisheries) for which we can identify a beginning leading to present conditions. My congratulations to the author." Hugh H. DeWitt, Copeia
"A detailed and well-organized table of contents serves as an excellent guide to the many subjects covered. The glossary of terms is a welcome addition for the nonspecialist reader....The author is to be commended for writing a well-organized and easily readable book, which provides the first detailed account of the Antarctic finfish fishery." D.W. Martens, Marine Geodesy
"...presents a thorough, up-to-date synthesis of what is known, much of it resulting from research during the last 20 years about the fishes of the Southern Ocean....The author is to be commended for producing a masterful work on Antarctic fish and for his command of English. The book reads better than some written by native users of the language." Richard R. Eakin, Transactions of the American Fisheries Society
"...a modern and through treatment...richly documented (43 pages of references), and provides frequent comparisons with temperate-zone fishes and ecosystems." David Policansky, Science
"The book contains the most comprehensive account currently available of the major Antarctic finfish fisheries....I believe the book is a requisite for any properly equipped marine science and fisheries library. In addition, the breadth of the subject matter and the author's style make it captivating reading for anyone genuinely interested in Antarctic fish ecology and fisheries development." Saul Saila, Marine Technology Society Journal
Although Antarctic finfish have been exploited for more than two decades and many stocks now appear to be overfished, this is the first detailed account of this fishery. The book begins by giving a comprehensive description of Antarctic fish biology and ecology, the thorough understanding of which is a prerequisite to sound management of the fishery. Subsequent sections consider the course of finfish exploitation and the present state of exploited fish stocks in the Southern Ocean. The author concludes by proposing more effective management methods for the fish resources of the Southern Ocean in light of the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources.
