Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungTropical estuaries are a vital part of the marine and tropical ecosystem and there is currently a great deal of concern about the impacts of human activities on them. The economic value of estuaries far outweighs their relative size, having the highest value per hectare than any other ecosystem. This book provides a full overview of the exploited fish species and their associated fisheries, on which many countries' economies rely.
