Mar revolto – por Emanuel Gonçalves

863673“O Governo acaba de aprovar a lei que regula o ordenamento do mar e prepara-se igualmente para fazer sair uma outra dedicada à exploração dos recursos geológicos e
minerais, incluindo no mar profundo.

Foi um processo turbulento o que conduziu a estes diplomas, onde, associado a uma falta de participação da comunidade científica e da sociedade em geral, por opção governativa, se juntou um ignorar dos consensos técnicos que se geraram, autonomamente, através de encontros produzidos por diversos especialistas das áreas do direito, políticas públicas, ordenamento, biologia marinha, conservação da natureza, pescas, etc., e ainda a não contemplação de legítimas preocupações constitucionais das regiões autónomas com falhas a nível da gestão partilhada do mar português. Culminou agora com a quebra de um compromisso de que este diploma voltaria ao Parlamento para discussão e consensualização final.”

img“We have made real progress towards sustainable fishing in Europe. Last year, EU member states agreed new rules that laid the foundations for sustainable management of European fisheries – and some fish stocks are already recovering.

The new Common Fisheries Policy aims to rebuild fish populations to levels that are capable of producing the maximum sustainable yields (MSY) of fish stocks, and requires member states to take social and environmental aspects into account when choosing how they distribute the fishing quota across their fleet.”

The EU Discard Reduction Manual

eu-discards-cover_711x219“The European Union recently introduced a new set of laws—known as the landing obligation—under its Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) to address this issue by banning the discarding of unwanted and unmarketable fish. The reformed CFP also requires all overfishing to end by 2015 for the majority of fish stocks and by 2020 for overfishing to end completely.

Environmental Defense Fund has developed a user-friendly guide to help EU fishermen, fishery managers and Member State regulators find ways to successfully implement the CFP landing obligation requirements.”

This new ecolabel is in line with the UN Food and Agriculture Organization’s guidelines on responsible fisheries (1995) and eco-labeling (2009), and has been ‘enriched’ with social and economic criteria to address different parts of sustainable development.”

“A 1ª reunião do projecto da WWF ‘Co-Pesca’ teve dois objectivos: por um lado apresentar o projecto complementado com outros casos de co-gestão e por outro colocar os stakeholders presentes a trabalhar nos casos de estudo previamente identificados.

Esta reunião que teve a presença de 32 participantes representantes de variadas instituições, iniciou-se com uma apresentação do trabalho da WWF em Portugal pela Ângela Morgado, bem como as boas vindas da parte do Sérgio Leandro, sub-director da ESTM. De seguida, o projecto foi apresentado sumariamente por Rita Sá da WWF Portugal. O caso da co-gestão da pesca de enguia de areia na Catalunha foi apresentado por Maurício Pulido (ver caixa de texto), tendo sido este reforçado de seguida por José Luis Ríos da WWF Espanha, com outros casos de co-gestão de pescarias espanholas acompanhadas pela WWF.

A 2ª parte da reunião decorreu com os trabalhos dos participantes sobre os casos de estudos previamente identificados no eixo Peniche-Nazaré. Cada caso estudo tinha uma mesa com um respectivo facilitador e relator, acrescentando-se ainda uma mesa para sugestões de casos de estudo. Os presentes foram convidados a escolherem duas mesas para trabalharem.

A sessão foi encerrada com a presença dos Presidentes das Câmaras Municipais da Nazaré e Peniche, Walter Chicharro e António Correia, respectivamente, que salientaram a importância que a co-gestão poderá ter para as pescarias locais.

Prevê-se que os trabalhos continuem a ser desenvolvidos com os casos de estudos que apresentem resultados consistentes para a continuação de um processo de cogestão com o envolvimento dos stakeholders identificados.

Queremos ainda agradecer à ESTM pela cedência do espaço, bem como por toda a disponibilidade em apoiar a nossa iniciativa.”

Turning_The _Tide_Overview_Map_Large“Os mares do noroeste da Europa – os mares do Norte, da Irlanda e Céltico, juntamente com as águas a oeste da Escócia e da Irlanda – gozam de uma combinação rica e diversa de ambientes e de vida selvagem que moldaram as culturas instaladas nas suas margens. Durante milénios, a riqueza natural destas águas impulsionou o desenvolvimento das comunidades costeiras e permitiu a expansão das pescas na busca de alimentos e rendimento.

No entanto, nas últimas décadas, a escala dessa expansão tem aumentado dramaticamente. Os apelos à redução da pressão de pesca por parte de cientistas e ambientalistas têm sido demasiadas vezes ignorados por políticos que dão prioridade a ganhos económicos e políticos a curto prazo, em detrimento de uma sustentabilidade a longo prazo. Em resultado disso, diversas unidades populacionais de peixes entraram em situação de rutura um pouco por toda a região, o que teve consequências devastadoras para as comunidades piscatórias. Perante isto, a União Europeia (UE) aprovou recentemente uma reforma da política de gestão das pescas, a Política Comum das Pescas (PCP), que deverá revelar-se como um importante primeiro passo para a recuperação e manutenção da saúde das pescas e das unidades populacionais depeixes, bem como das comunidades e dos ecossistemas marinhos que delas dependem.

Este relatório faz uma análise aprofundada dos mares do noroeste da Europa, das suas características, da sua história e do papel que as pescarias têm desempenhado nas fases de crescimento e de recessão das comunidades à beira-mar. O conhecimento das diferentes regiões – e do papel fundamental desempenhado pelas suas unidades populacionais de peixes – reforça a importância de uma implementação eficaz da PCP reformada, que obriga ao fim da sobrepesca na Europa, tanto quanto possível em 2015 e, o mais tardar, até 2020. Chegou a hora de garantirmos que os objetivos desta política passam da retórica à realidade.”

journal.pone.0118992.g001“Globally, small-scale fisheries are influenced by dynamic climate, governance, and market drivers, which present social and ecological challenges and opportunities. It is difficult to manage fisheries adaptively for fluctuating drivers, except to allow participants to shift effort among multiple fisheries. Adapting to changing conditions allows small-scale fishery participants to survive economic and environmental disturbances and benefit from optimal conditions. This study explores the relative influence of large-scale drivers on shifts in effort and outcomes among three closely linked fisheries in Monterey Bay since the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Act of 1976. In this region, Pacific sardine (Sardinops sagax), northern anchovy (Engraulis mordax), and market squid (Loligo opalescens) fisheries comprise a tightly linked system where shifting focus among fisheries is a key element to adaptive capacity and reduced social and ecological vulnerability. Using a cluster analysis of landings, we identify four modes from 1974 to 2012 that are dominated (i.e., a given species accounting for the plurality of landings) by squid, sardine, anchovy, or lack any dominance, and seven points of transition among these periods. This approach enables us to determine which drivers are associated with each mode and each transition. Overall, we show that market and climate drivers are predominantly attributed to dominance transitions. Model selection of external drivers indicates that governance phases, reflected as perceived abundance, dictate long-term outcomes. Our findings suggest that globally, small-scale fishery managers should consider enabling shifts in effort among fisheries and retaining existing flexibility, as adaptive capacity is a critical determinant for social and ecological resilience.”

IMG_6121“Over 450 stakeholders, including FLAGs, Managing Authorities, fisheries organisations and NGOs, involved in the sustainable development of coastal and fisheries areas took part in DG MARE’s high level event in Brussels, “Sailing Towards 2020”. The event brought together delegates from 27 different countries, including political leaders from the local, regional and national level, as well as Members of the European Parliament and representatives from the European Council’s Presidency and the Commission.

Opened by Mr. Karmenu Vella, European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries and organised with the assistance of the FARNET Support Unit, the conference offered an opportunity to witness first-hand the results of 42 local projects supported by Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund (EFF) and to explore the potential for Community-Led Local Development (CLLD) to face new challenges in coastal and fisheries communities.

Implemented by 312 Fisheries Local Action Groups (FLAGs), Axis 4, during the 2007-2014 period, supported over 10 000 projects at the local level, applying a bottom-up, local development approach in fisheries and coastal areas across 21 Member States. In the 2014-2020 period, CLLD will be supported by the EMFF, as well as by other European Structural and Investment Funds such as the Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, the Regional Development Fund or the Social Fund.

Through a dynamic project exhibition and a series of thematic working group sessions, the “Sailing Towards 2020″ conference studied the achievements and lessons drawn from Axis 4 in order to inform the development of CLLD in Europe’s coastal areas. In particular, it considered new opportunities for FLAGs to work in partnership with other actors in order to seize the challenges and opportunities presented by the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy, blue growth, climate change and the urgency of fostering job creation and social inclusion in coastal and fisheries areas. ”

Delivering Unwelcome Species to the Mediterranean

05green-articleLarge“The Mediterranean Sea is among the world’s great environmental jewels. The sea is highly saline, almost entirely enclosed by land and contains immense biodiversity. Scientists have long worried that its health is imperiled. Swelling coastal populations and ship traffic have brought overfishing and pollution. Climate change threatens to roil the waters still further.

One threat that is now gaining particular attention: the arrival of invasive species. One of the Mediterranean’s few outlets is the 146-year-old Suez Canal, which links it to the Red Sea and the ocean beyond. This creates a vital shipping route between Europe and Asia. But scientists fear that an expansion of the canal could bring more invasive species to the Mediterranean’s fragile waters.”

“The 29th Session of the FAO Committee on Fisheries (COFI) held in February 2011 recommended that an international instrument on small-scale fisheries be developed. This is based on the increasing recognition of small-scale fisheries as a principal contributor to poverty alleviation and food security and the guidance provided by a number of global and regional conferences and consultative meetings exploring how to better bring together responsible fisheries and social development in coastal and inland fishing communities.

The Guidelines will be voluntary, focus on the needs of developing countries, and relevant to small-scale fisheries in marine and inland waters covering fishing as well as related post-harvest and upstream activities. They will be in support of national, regional and international initiatives for poverty alleviation and equitable social and economic development, for improving governance of fisheries and promoting sustainable resource utilization. Their objective is to provide advice and recommendations, establish principles and criteria, and information to assist States and stakeholders to achieve secure and sustainable small-scale fisheries and related livelihoods.

The Guidelines will be developed through a consultative process involving governments, regional organisations, civil society organisations, and small-scale fishers, fish workers and their communities.”
