Carl Walters and Steven Martell of the University of British Columbia have a new text on Fisheries Ecology and Management.
Lots of fisheries science, but also lots of tart asides on the practice of fisheries management. Like this (following a discussion of tradeoffs between management goals) :
...In many cases there is not even a clearly defined forum in which trade-off relationships can be presented to all who consider themselves stakeholders, so that debate might lead to some consensus about the best balance. Rather, these trade-off issues are debated in multiple jurisdictions, using multiple routes to access political decision-makers, and with scientific exaggeration and misinformation used routinely as debating tools.
