Retired U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) marine geologist Peter Barnes won the USGS Western Region Geology Discipline Scientist Emeritus Best Publication Award for the book Benthic Habitats and the Effects of Fishing, published by the American Fisheries Society. The award was presented at the annual USGS Western Region Awards Ceremony in Menlo Park, California, on November 14, 2007.

The full reference for the publication is: Barnes, P.W., and Thomas, J.P., eds., 2005, Benthic habitats and the effects of fishing; proceedings of the Symposium on Effects of Fishing Activities on Benthic Habitats—Linking Geology, Biology, Socioeconomics, and Management, Tampa, Florida, November 12-14, 2002: American Fisheries Society Symposium 41: Bethesda, Md., 890 p.

Wes Ward, Acting Southwest Area Regional Executive, read the following summary of Barnes' award citation:

"This volume, which focuses on the effects of fishing activities on benthic habitats and the related science and knowledge needed to understand and quantify those effects, as well as to suggest new ways to address them for sustainable fisheries and healthy, diverse ecosystems, provides a groundbreaking contribution to science and policy about benthic habitats and the effects of fishing. It is the first multifaceted approach to scientific analysis and discussions of socioeconomic issues of fisheries resource management and provides an excellent advancement of the USGS mission of integrated science. Peter Barnes, as the co-editor of the volume and co-convener of the symposium, is directly responsible for this important work." (See Sound Waves article, "New Book on Benthic Habitats and the Effects of Fishing.")
