 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.
