ESR Theme Issue: "Fisheries Bycatch: Problems and Solutions"
Fisheries bycatch is an issue of global conservation concern that affects
many species worldwide. Endangered Species Research (ESR)
http://www.int-res.com/journals/esr/, a growing conservation journal, is
developing a theme issue on "Fisheries Bycatch: Problems and Solutions"
for publication mid-2008. All material will be fully open access and thus
a high level of visibility is ensured. This ESR theme issue was catalyzed
by the ongoing work of Project GloBAL <http://bycatch.env.duke.edu/>
(Global Bycatch Assessment of Long Lived Species) that seeks to address
this pressing conservation problem through innovative research approaches
and collaborative efforts. Manuscripts addressing current bycatch
hotspots, analytical approaches to understanding and assessing bycatch,
and bycatch solutions in both industrial and artisanal fisheries are
welcomed. To discuss the suitability of a manuscript for inclusion in this
ESR Special, please contact Dr. Rebecca Lewison (ESR Editor)
<rlewison from sciences.sdsu.edu> or Dr. Brendan Godley (ESR Editor-in-Chief)
<b.j.godley from ex.ac.uk>
This ESR Special will build upon the success of "Tracking Vertebrates for
Conservation" which has begun posting finalized corrected proofs and will
be published online by end of year 2007.
