This study addresses the main ethical issues in fisheries and the moral imperatives to which they give rise and considers the role and scope of ethics in the management of the sector. Particular reference is made to the institutional foundations of fisheries policies as reflected in the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries. Concrete examples and case studies support or illustrate the themes presented. This introduction to a holistic, ethical approach to fisheries pays special attention to the effects of fisheries management and social policy upon people's living conditions.

The independent Panel of Eminent Experts on Ethics in Food and Agriculture was established by the Director-General of FAO to advise the Organization and raise public awareness of ethical considerations associated with such vital issues as food security for present and future generations and sustainable management of the earth's limited resources.

Non-heart-beating donors (individuals whose deaths result from a cardiopulmonary cause) could potentially be of major importance in reducing the gap between the demand for and available supply of organs for transplantation. Prompted by questions concerning the medical management of such donors -- specifically, whether interventions undertaken to enhance the supply and quality of potentially transplantable organs (i.e., the use of anticoagulants and vasodilators) were in the best interests of donor patients or were instead hastening their deaths -- the U.S. Department of Health and Human Servic

From a non-Christian perspective, the ethical issues of racism are much more radically desperate than most are willing to admit. The non-Christian has no legitimate, non-arbitrary ethical standard by which to condemn racist practices.

While unhinging tired secular arguments, Jones presents a deft, biblical apologetic against racism.
