Note 1. Introduction to the Red Sea -- 2. Egypt -- 3. Sudan -- 4. Eritrea -- 5. Yemen -- 6. Saudi Arabia -- 7. Jordan -- 8. Israel -- 9. An exploration of ecosystem-based approaches for the management of Red Sea fisheries -- 10. Common names of exploited fish and invertebrates of the Red Sea
This book is the first comprehensive coverage of Red Sea fisheries to inform researchers and decision makers. The Red Sea is a geologically young sea, but also an area with the oldest record of human sea food exploitation. Examining the fisheries of the Red Sea has become extremely important to understand the ecosystem and the direct human impact of fishing on Red Sea ecosystems. This volume gives extensive data on different fisheries sectors identified and described for each country bordering the Red Sea. Furthermore, its catch and specific composition is also described over the period 1950 to 2010. Combined with the ecosystem model this useful information can uniquely help managing fisheries and ecosystems of the Red Sea
