    Alan Longhurst began his career in fisheries science, but is best known as a biological oceanographer, being the first Director of the Southwest Fisheries Science Center of the US NMFS in La Jolla, California, and later the Director-General of the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in Nova Scotia, Canada. He produced the first estimate of global plant production in the oceans using satellite imagery, and also quantified vertical carbon flux through the planktonic ecosystem. More recently, in reaction to disastrous Canadian management of NW Atlantic cod stocks, he has offered a number of critical reviews of several aspects of fishery management science. He retired in 1995 and now divides his time between south-west France and Nova Scotia.

    Preface
    From certainty to doubt in fishery science
    The ecological consequences of the extraordinary fecundity of teleosts
    Indeterminate growth, negative senescence and longevity
    Marine ecosystems: their structure and simulation
    The natural variability of fish populations and fisheries
    Has sustainability in fishing ever been achieved?
    What is the real state of global fish populations?
    The mechanics of fish population collapse
    Why do some fish populations not recover after depletion?
    Is the response of the fishery science community appropriate?
    Conclusion: sustainability can be achieved rarely, and only under special conditions
