Abstract

Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries 8, 225±227 (1998) Editorial: The Beverton and Holt Jubilee Issue, 1947±1997 Fifty years ago, Hulme et al. published a brief paper in Nature, not cited much today, but which ushered a new era in ®sheries science. The discipline, then about 50 years old, had identi®ed many of its current research themes: the distribution and growth of resource species, their reproductive seasons and areas, the fate of their larvae, and their selection by ®shing gear. Fisheries science, however, still lacked a quantitative framework to interpret the data collected by its practitioners: the early seeds planted by F. I. Baranov had not taken root, and the conceptual understanding of over®shing achieved by B. C. Russell and Michael Graham had not yet been translated into working models. Ten years later, the `et al.' of the 1947 paper had become a famous person ± Bevertonandholt ± who had authored classics such as `Methods for estimating mortality rates in ®sh populations', and `The life-spans and mortality rates of ®sh in nature'. Then there is the book of 1957, often and for good reasons referred to as the `bible' (see Pitcher, this volume). Like its capitalized counterpart, the `bible'
