Abstract

The simultaneous development of fisheries science and fisheries management that Ray Beverton and Sydney Holt envisioned in 1957 is argued not to have occurred over the past 40 years. The causes of the many failures of fisheries management have been too frequently a matter of informal debate, and almost never a matter of scientific testing of hypotheses. A broader scope for fisheries science is suggested that would be required as a basis for testing hypotheses about the causes of the failure of “simultaneous and complementary advances” of the science and management of fisheries. The history of the science and management of the International Whaling Commission is used as an example of the scientific scope required to adequately test hypothesized causes of the failures of fisheries management, and to emphasize the relevance of such testing to evaluating the likely success of current management proposals.
