banner“The Center for the Blue Economy at the Monterey Institute of International Studies is proud to announce the launch of its new Journal of Ocean and Coastal Economics (JOCE), a peer-reviewed, open access online journal that publishes research on the theory and practice of economics as applied to ocean and coastal resources and the role these resources play in regional and national economies.

WHY JOCE?

The examination of the economic role of oceans and of coastal regions has become a very active area of research as nations and researchers have become aware of the critical and unique roles that oceans play in the health of both economies and ecosystems.  A wide array of economic theories, and methods and data are being deployed to better understand oceans, including resource and environmental economics, regional economics, national income accounting, and the economics of specific industries.

Until JOCE, those wishing to share research in this field outside of fisheries have used outlets specialized in subfields of economics not normaly accessed by those in the ocean and coastal communities or in outlets for the ocean and coastal research that only occasionally address economic issues.  JOCE offers an opportunity to share research with a growing, diverse, and international community of both scholarly researchers and those in the public, private, and third sectors with responsibilities for ocean and coastal resources.

For JOCE, “ocean” and “coastal” refer to traditional definitions of oceans, but also includes inland bodies of water that have similar economic characteristics such as the Great Lakes or Lake Baikal.  The definition includes major embayments and estuaries; the inland boundary of “ocean” and “coastal” is a matter of interpretation and authors are encouraged to explore different definitions of the inland boundaries of the economics of ocean and coastal resources.”

Bombordo – Quero Ser Pescador – Episódio 11

 

“Ser pescador é uma profissão pouco ambicionada nos tempos que correm. As tripulações estão envelhecidas, os pescadores sonham com um futuro diferente do seu para os filhos, mas na verdade o setor precisa urgentemente de sangue novo. Para aqueles que ainda sonham com o futuro a bordo de um barco de pesca há um caminho a percorrer que começa na formação profissional. O Bombordo acompanhou alguns jovens cuja ambição passa por fazer carreira na pesca e foi em busca da esperança que os move.”

journal.pone.0101506.g001“The worldwide depletion of major fish stocks through intensive industrial fishing is thought to have profoundly altered the trophic structure of marine ecosystems. Here we assess changes in the trophic structure of the English Channel marine ecosystem using a 90-year time-series (1920–2010) of commercial fishery landings. Our analysis was based on estimates of the mean trophic level (mTL) of annual landings and the Fishing-in-Balance index (FiB). Food webs of the Channel ecosystem have been altered, as shown by a significant decline in the mTL of fishery landings whilst increases in the FiB index suggest increased fishing effort and fishery expansion. Large, high trophic level species (e.g. spurdog, cod, ling) have been increasingly replaced by smaller, low trophic level fish (e.g. small spotted catsharks) and invertebrates (e.g. scallops, crabs and lobster). Declining trophic levels in fisheries catches have occurred worldwide, with fish catches progressively being replaced by invertebrates. We argue that a network of fisheries closures would help rebalance the trophic status of the Channel and allow regeneration of marine ecosystems.”

Striped parrotfish (Scarus iseri) on a reefWhen you’re enjoying seafood, you probably don’t spend much time thinking about how fish actually get to your plate. Not where they’re from or how they were caught, but something much more complex: how people figure out when and where it’s ok to fish and how much fish is safe to take out of the water.

UK-Blues-6-300x226I was recently invited to a Blue Shark diving day in the UK. I am being a bit vague about where because my article really is a generic one and not aimed at anyone specifically. The day started with laying out a trail of chum as we drifted. In this ‘scent trail’ the skipper set a line and baited hook for catching a shark with the intent of bringing it on board, showing the guests, taking measurements for research statistics and then letting it go.

International mobilisation against deep-sea trawling

Trawler_0On July 14th, European Fisheries Ministers will be meeting at the Council in Brussels. A reform of the EU deep-sea fisheries management regulation, including the ban of deep-sea bottom trawling, was proposed by Fisheries Commissioner Maria Damanaki in July 2012. As trawlers continue to drag their nets, the Fisheries Council drags its feet mainly due to the pressure that countries such as France and Spain have put up to hinder the reform. These industrial fishing nations are now jeopardising the adoption of the ban in Council.
