Abstract

The cover of the 1993 reprint of Beverton and Holt's book bears a diagram, its significance previously unrecognized, that expresses extinction due to fishing. This paper traces the concept to self-regenerating yield models in their 1957 book, its numerical development therein far in advance of its reinvention 30 years later. Local extinction constitutes a critical impact of fisheries on aquatic ecosystems that has been too often downplayed by fisheries science.
