Now Browsing: Fisheries Management International

A collection of papers taken from the vast body of overseas literature on fisheries management. Our purpose here is to find examples, case studies and 'lesson's learned' in fisheries management from around the world which can help us to understand our New Zealand fisheries management challenges. The state of the world's fisheries and ocean ecosystems is a serious concern worldwide and there are many parallels with issues we now face in New Zealand.

Author(s): Halpern et. al.

The management and conservation of the world’s oceans require synthesis of spatial data on the distribution and intensity of human activities and the overlap of their impacts on marine
ecosystems. We developed an ecosystem-specific, multiscale spatial model to synthesize 17 global data sets of anthropogenic drivers of ecological change for 20 marine ecosystems. Our analysis indicates that no area is unaffected by human influence and that a large fraction (41%) is strongly affected by multiple drivers. However, large areas of relatively little human impact remain, particularly near the poles. The analytical process and resulting maps provide flexible tools for regional and global efforts to allocate conservation resources; to implement ecosystem-based management; and to inform marine spatial planning, education, and basic research.

Author(s): Kerwath etal 2013

Sven E. Kerwath1,2, Henning Winker2, Albrecht Go¨tz3 & Colin G. Attwood2

Potential fishery benefits of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are widely acknowledged, yet seldom demonstrated, as fishery data series that straddle MPA establishment are seldom available. Here we postulate, based on a 15-year time series of nation-wide, spatially referenced catch and effort data, that the establishment of the Goukamma MPA (18 km alongshore; 40 km2) benefited the adjacent fishery for roman (Chrysoblephus laticeps), a South
African endemic seabream. Roman-directed catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) in the vicinity of the new MPA immediately increased, contradicting trends across this species’ distribution. The increase continued after 5 years, the time lag expected for larval export, effectively doubling the pre-MPA CPUE after 10 years. We find no indication that establishing the MPA caused a systematic drop in total catch or increased travel distances for the fleet. Our results provide
rare empirical evidence of rapidly increasing catch rates after MPA implementation without measurable disadvantages for fishers.

This file has a .pdf extensionThe Fishery Effects of Marine Reserves and Fishery Closures
Author(s): WWF

Marine reserves, areas permanently closed to all fishing, are frequently proposed as a tool for managing fisheries. Fishery benefits claimed for reserves include increases in spawning stock size, animal body size, and reproductive output of exploited species. Extensive field research confirms many of these predictions. Reserves worldwide have led to increases in abundance, body size, biomass and reproductive output of exploited species. Encouraged by these results, many countries and states have embarked upon initiatives to establish networks of marine reserves. We describe experiences that prove that success of marine reserves is not contingent on habitat type, geographical location, the kind of fishery involved, or the technological sophistication of management. We now have strong evidence that with the support of local communities, marine reserves offer a highly effective management tool. They will be most effective when implemented as part of a package of limits on fishing effort, designed to protect exploited species and their habitats.

This file has a .pdf extensionPolicy Proposals, Operational Guidance for Ecosystem-Based Management of Marine Capture Fisheries
Author(s): WWF

This paper describes in detail the concept of Ecosystem-Based Management in marine capture fisheries. It is designed to identify the main issues and propose policies and implementation guidance to help resolve those issues. WWF has prepared these Policy Proposals and Guidelines to encourage and inform the global debate and provide an operational interpretation of how to apply the principles of Ecosystem-Based Management to marine capture fisheries. The Paper is designed to build on existing knowledge and approaches to develop the concept into a workable approach for implementation in individual fisheries, consistent with integrating global and regional policy requirements into national arrangements for on-ground and ‘in-water’ actions.
