Abstract

The biological resources of the sea have long fascinated man. The mystery of what lies beneath the surface has stimulated his imagination and nurtured hope that in this vast area there are resources capable of feeding a growing and a still hungry population for centuries to come. But, at the same time, realization of this hope is impeded by the opacity, instability, and sheer magnitude of the medium itself - by man's inability to see and hold. Fishing - one of man's earliest callings - is still haphazard and subject to the vagaries of weather, ocean currents, and mysterious migrations (Christy and Scott, 1965, p. v).
