Lloyd M. Dickie, a marine biologist, argues that responses to the decline of fisheries around the world and in the Gulf of Maine have inappropriately focused on collecting ever-more-accurate data rather than reassessing the theory of fishery management. He suggests the focus should shift to analyzing the total energy produced by the undersea food chain and to counting local fish density rather than total abundance. A related insert notes that unlike other predators, fishermen do not stop hunting when sated, so unregulated fishing remains as much a threat as climatic change. Details, seven related articles on the Gulf of Maine this issue.
