Fishing For Truth
A Sociological Analysis of Northern Cod Stock Assessments from 1977 to 1990
Alan Christopher Finlayson
For anyone immersed in - or just interested in - the fisheries management process, Mr. Finlayson's analysis of the process and the decisions that were central to the current condition of Eastern Canada's cod fishery is must reading. If there is anyone out there who still assumes that the management of our living marine resources is a rational process based on sound and objective science, read Fishing For Truth at the earliest possible opportunity.
