This report reviews the methods available for assessing the impacts of interactions between species and fisheries and their implications for marine fisheries management. The focus is on modelling methods and multi-species population dynamics effects, rather than on the full range of ecosystem aspects of fishing which encompass, for example, environmental effects and technical interactions (e.g. bycatch issues), although minor mention of these is made. The first section takes a broad overview of some of the most commonly applied multi-species/ecosystem approaches to fisheries management. The next section summarizes the results and conclusions reached by previous studies and workshops on the subject, including the ICES/SCOR Symposium on Ecosystem Effects of Fishing, the Workshop on the Use of Ecosystem Models to Investigate Multi-species Management Strategies for Capture Fisheries, the International Whaling Commission (IWC) Modelling Workshop on Cetacean-Fishery Competition, .....
