CIESM Workshop Series, n°7:

Precautionary approach to local fisheries in the Mediterranean Sea
Kerkenna Island (Tunisia), September 1999,
96 p., 126 refs.

Outcome of a meeting, held in Kerkenna Island, Tunisia, from 23 to 26 September 1999 with the participation of some 18 researchers from twelve countries.
This workshop aimed to discuss the scientific dimensions and applications of the precautionay principle to Mediterranean fisheries. By bringing together experts from the entire periphery of the Basin, it was able to review current practices and trends at the local level and to initiate a broad debate on the definitions of appropriate reference points in the face of uncertainty.

This volume, fully illustrated and rich in references, is available in print from our on-line bookstore.
