|Abstract: ||The papers presented in this thesis represent my contributions to the empirical study of marine biological resources. This research has adopted the same experimental approach to: (i) develop scientifically validated techniques to solve specific problems; (ii) use these techniques to detect patterns and form conceptual models about the processes that may have caused them; (iii) do manipulative field experiments to support or refute hypotheses derived from these models; (iv) use these results to develop new models and hypotheses and to test them in new experiments; and (v) recommend, where appropriate, changes to the management of the resources examined. A rigorous, empirical approach is the common feature throughout my research (in its overall direction and subject-to-subject execution) and represents one of the few attempts to adopt such an approach across the three fields in which I have worked: (1) the ecology of underwater kelp systems; (2) the biology of and fishery for a commercially exploited crab; and (3) solving by-catch problems in commercial trawl fisheries.|
