Regional plans adopted as landing obligation nears

logo_en“The European Commission has today adopted a series of discard plans as it gears up for the introduction of an obligation to land all catches on 1 January 2015.

Discarding, the practice of returning unwanted fish back into the sea, is banned by the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) which stipulates that fishermen will instead have to land everything that they catch. The five discard plans adopted today contain some practical rules, as well as a limited number of exemptions, to help fishermen implement the new rules.”

The system will use current satellite networks linked to powerful software that can track tens of thousands of vessels at once all over the world. It will follow their movements, spot when and where they are fishing and then check if they have a right to be there.

Valdivia Coastal Reserve, Valdivia, Chile: Juvenal Trivi os, President Sindicato de Pescadores de Chaihu n

Today, Chile is a global example for good near-shore fisheries management. The emblematic Chilean abalone, and other important seafood, like mussels, limpets, and sea urchins live in the rocky and sandy bottoms along the Chilean coast and support the livelihoods of 50,000 artisanal fishermen and their families as a primary source of income.

But, as recently as the 1980s, Chile’s artisanal fisheries were plagued by poor management. Fishers would move up and down the coast from one port to the next following natural resource blooms. The once abundant and valuable Chilean abalone was overfished, leaving an overexploited fishery that was shut down.

After ICCAT’s Scientific Committee (SCRS) gathered in the last days in Madrid to assess the situation of the bluefin tuna in the East Atlantic and the Mediterranean, WWF calls for cautious optimism and continued guarantees to ensure the full recovery of the species’ population.
“In spite of the high uncertainties surrounding the assessment, one thing appears clear today: the stock is no longer at risk of collapse, and this is a direct result of the current recovery plan. However, strong concerns remain, particularly regarding the traceability of the fish,” said Dr Sergi Tudela, Head of Fisheries at WWF Mediterranean.

“The European Commission on Oct. 3 published its proposal for fishing limits, known as Total Allowable Catches (TACs), for deep-sea fish stocks caught in 2015-2016 by European Union vessels. Deep-sea fish species such as orange roughy, roundnose grenadier, blue ling, mirror dory and silver dory, are particularly vulnerable to overfishing because they generally live longer, grow slower, mature later, and spawn fewer young than many other fish species. In addition, a number of deep-sea fish stocks in the north-eastern Atlantic Ocean have already been significantly depleted.”

hgfh.png“Modern resource management faces trade-offs in the provision of various ecosystem goods and services to humanity. For fisheries management to develop into an ecosystem-based approach, the goal is not only to maximize economic profits, but to consider equally important conservation and social equity goals. We introduce such a triple-bottom line approach to the management of multi-species fisheries using the Baltic Sea as a case study. We apply a coupled ecological-economic optimization model to address the actual fisheries management challenge of trading-off the recovery of collapsed cod stocks versus the health of ecologically important forage fish populations. Management strategies based on profit maximization would rebuild the cod stock to high levels but may cause the risk of stock collapse for forage species with low market value, such as Baltic sprat (Fig. 1A). Economically efficient conservation efforts to protect sprat would be borne almost exclusively by the forage fishery as sprat fishing effort and profits would strongly be reduced. Unless compensation is paid, this would challenge equity between fishing sectors (Fig. 1B). Optimizing equity while respecting sprat biomass precautionary levels would reduce potential profits of the overall Baltic fishery, but may offer an acceptable balance between overall profits, species conservation and social equity (Fig. 1C). Our case study shows a practical example of how an ecosystem-based fisheries management will be able to offer society options to solve common conflicts between different resource uses. Adding equity considerations to the traditional trade-off between economy and ecology will greatly enhance credibility and hence compliance to management decisions, a further footstep towards healthy fish stocks and sustainable fisheries in the world ocean.”
