This file has a .pdf extensionThe Economics of Marine Protected Areas
Author(s): Allen Consulting Group

This 2009 report uses bio-economic modelling to measure the economic potential of a network of marine protected areas, applying the principals to Australia’s South West Bioregion. The findings show the combination of fishery buffer benefits, spillovers for commercial and recreational fishing and increased ecotourism are likely to outweigh losses due to recreational and commercial fishers displacement.

This file has a .pdf extensionMarine protected area improves yield without disadvantaging fishers
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.
