    • Balanced harvest: Utopia, failure, or a functional strategy? 

      Kolding, Jeppe; Garcia, Serge M.; Zhou, Shijie; Heino, Mikko Petteri (Oxford University Press, 2016-04-21)
      Since “balanced harvest” was proposed in 2010 as a possible tool in the operationalization of the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF), the concept gained extensive international attention. Because maintaining ecosystem ...
