Abstract
    The “Nansen book” on the voyages of the iconic research ship, Dr Fridtjof Nansen, documents how marine research in the Western Indian Ocean evolved from exploratory surveys in the 1970s to fi nd new fi sheries stocks, to the present ecosystem surveys in support of bett er fi sheries management. The book provides a rare glimpse into the practi cal realiti es of conducti ng research at sea. It also shows how ocean features, biological producti vity and the abundance and diversity of marine life forms link together in marine ecosystems, from the Horn of Africa, to southern Mozambique and Madagascar, and eastwards to the tropical islands of Seychelles and Mauriti us. In parallel with Nansen surveys at sea, scienti fi c capacity development, support for policy development and implementati on of Ecosystems Approaches to Fisheries management (EAF) form the other pillars of the broader Nansen Programme. The fi nal chapters of the book evaluate the impacts of this programme in the region, and highlight the historic and new emerging challenges in knowledge and capacity. As such, the book is of strategic importance. The Nansen book is aimed at the great many people with a passion for the oceans, and what lies beneath the waves. It is also meant for specialist marine scienti sts, fi sheries managers, and policy makers dealing with the use and conservati on of marine resources. Students reading it will gain insights into how science is conducted on-board a research ship, and how the results can be applied to sustainable fi shing practi ces, and to marine conservati on. Chapters were writt en by eminent marine scienti sts from the Western Indian Ocean region, counter-balanced by Norwegian scienti sts with long experience of Nansen surveys.
