The books brought together in the “Seas and Oceans” Set make up a multi-disciplinary and systemic approach to the complexity, vulnerability, productivity and exploitation of the marine environment that is today faced with global change. This set of books does not simply describe and analyze the mechanisms that act on how these environments work, but it also presents a cross-disciplinary approach, leading to the governance, sustainable management of resources and adaptation of our societies to change.
The diversity of goods and services provided by the ocean has proven to be indispensable to human communities. Use of these services and exploitation of goods will have to be developed in a responsible and sustainable manner. New approaches and scenarios based on the analysis of the aquaculture and fishing production chain are developed to ensure an Ecological Economy linked to the use of living marine resources. An overview of EU maritime economy and policies is also presented.


1. The Services Provided by Marine Ecosystems: Economic Assessments and their Usages, Harold Levrel, Pedro Cabral, Océane Marcone and Rémi Mongruel.
2. Fisheries and Aquaculture Sustainability, Sylvestre Voisin and Pierre Fréon.
3. Fisheries Economics, Christian Chaboud.
4. Maritime Economy: Definition and Main Aspects, Régis Kalaydjian.
