The role of connectivity in the interplay between climate change and the spread of alien fish in a large Mediterranean river

Knowledge gaps and management priorities for recreational fisheries in the developing world

Shannon D. Bower; Øystein Aas; Robert Arlinghaus; T. Douglas Beard; Ian G. Cowx; Andy J. Danylchuk; Kátia M.F. Freire; Warren M. Potts; Stephen G. Sutton, and Steven J. Cooke

A survey with fisheries experts to gather information on recreational fisheries in developing countries shows that recreational fishing is socially important and is expected to grow in most countries. Recreational fisheries were described as mainly consumption oriented. Most often, tourists use marine waters, whereas resident recreational fishers use fresh waters.
