Abstract
    The management of marine fisheries is evolving rapidly in response to evidence of overexploitation, climate change impacts, and the recognition of the multiple uses and conservation needs of the marine ecosystem. This chapter reviews the contribution of ecosystem science to this change in vision, and to its implementation through the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF). The EAF is guided by the need to manage ecosystems for their long-term benefit, taking into consideration their multiple use and the cumulative and long-term impacts of such uses. This chapter argues that the EAF provides the foundation for increasing interaction between the ecosystem science and fisheries management communities, as an essential step to achieve sustainability of marine resources.
