1923; discussion in Smith 1994, pp. 158–162), but raised the question of whether other factors should be considered in addition to fishing pressure. In many respects, there was much thinking about EBFM-related concepts during this period. Although arguably one of the most famous intellectual discourses associated with fisheries, the history of the Thompson–Burkenroad debate over the causes of Pacific halibut declines, shows that the issue was never truly settled; nor has it been (generally speaking) to this day (Skud 1975; Walters and Collie 1988; Rose 2000).

There are many stories about why we have all these similar terms. For instance, some state that EBFM does not translate well into pictographic languages like Chinese, but EAF does (sensu Sissenwine and Murawski 2004; M. P. Sissenwine, personal communication, 2000), thus its adoption in international institutes like the United Nations’ Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO). Others note that EAF allows for the fishing sector to remain with classical SS approaches or to include enhanced considerations, while preparing to engage with other ocean use sectors Why an ecosystem-based approach?

Larkin’s (1996) harbinger discussion on the topic narrowed in on this as the key objective of LMR management. As difficult as it may be, we should seek to specify the species mix desired in the fish assemblage of an ecosystem. This final point is the crux of the matter. Thus the choice of subtitle for this book is “Confronting tradeoffs”. Without confronting tradeoffs directly, we will never be able to directly do EBFM. Doing EBFM is all about confronting tradeoffs. summary points • The world’s fisheries and living marine resources (LMRs) in general are facing some significant challenges.
