Libraries in universities and research establishments where this subject is studied and taught should have copies on their shelves.As one author put it: the goal is to facilitate a dialogue between assessment scientists and biologists. Readers of any specialty should accept this challenge, and this book is an excellent resource to aid them.--Fisheries, March 2010
