Abstract: Globally, fish are an important source of protein, and fisheries and aquaculture are critical to food security in many countries. Effective sustainable management of these fisheries is required at national and international levels so that fish stocks can contribute to meet global nutritional needs. At the international level, marine resource management has moved on from a single species stock assessment and management approach to a more holistic ¿Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries¿ (EAF), or variations on the theme (FAO, 2003; Garcia et al., 2003; Daan et al., 2005; Pitcher et al., 2008). EAF still includes single species stock assessment but is expanded to minimally include the wider impacts of fishing on the ecosystem, the role of the environment on species dynamics, the impacts of other activities and the engagement of stakeholders in the processes leading to decision making (Rice, 2008).
