[Kenneth Sherman; Hein Rune Skjoldal;] -- "The volume is an update on ecological conditions within the LMEs based on analyses presented to the first international symposium on North Atlantic LMEs held in Bergen, Norway. Using the case study. Introducing the Large Marine Ecosystem approach, ecosystem based management principles, and the five modules. There are three topics covered in this first week - ecosystem-based management, the concept of Large Marine Ecosystems, and the 5-module approach to assessment and management. Large Marine Ecosystems are a worldwide treasure. Large marine ecosystems are expansive ocean areas, generally greater than , km 2 (77, mi 2).They encircle nearly every continent and some large islands and island chains.

In marine ecosystems, rising atmospheric CO2 and climate change are associated with concurrent shifts in temperature, circulation, stratification, nutrient input, oxygen content, and ocean. The committee recommends the adoption of an ecosystem-based approach for fishery management to reduce overall fishing mortality. Its goal should be to rebuild and sustain populations, species, biological communities, and marine ecosystems at high levels of economic and biological productivity and biological diversity, so as not to jeopardize a wide range of goods and services from marine. Ecosystems An ecosystem is a community of living. and non-living things that work together. An ecosystems is sometimes called a. are important because they. sustain the natural world, providing humans. with resources needed to live. There are millions of ecosystems . The EA is embedded in the core of the concept of Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) which has been around for about 30 years. The LME process was launched in the early s and has proceeded with a number of symposia and books about the concept, approach, methodological aspects, and conditions in a wide range of LMEs around the globe (Sherman

The Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) of the world annually produce 95% of usable global marine biomass. LMEs are presently being subjected to stresses from unsustainable fishing, climate change, coastal eutrophication, toxic algal blooms and degradation of critical habitats, resulting in significant losses of socioeconomic benefits to coastal countries.

This is a book which examines much of what we know and also what we don’t know about the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem and its inherent variability. Building on recent work and exciting findings about the predictability of the Benguela and other coastal upwelling ecosystems, the book takes a look towards the future and highlights.
