“It is the quintessential herald of a fishing vessel on the horizon: a swarming congregation of seabirds, gliding, and diving in the distance, sun glinting on white wings as a cacophony of cries echoes across the water. Picturesque as it may be, the scene represents one of the largest threats to the survival of many seabirds. In their attempt to procure an easy meal from a fishing vessel’s baited lines, loaded nets and discards, birds are often entangled or hooked in fishing gear. Known as bycatch, accidental entrapment of unwanted marine life is estimated to account for between 160,000 and 320,000 seabird deaths every year.”

meam-justified-square-clear-1“A primary goal for many marine scientists in academia or non-governmental research organizations is improving understanding of marine ecosystems so they can be better managed and conserved. But remaining primarily in the academic realm and publishing relevant findings in academic journals alone may not be sufficient (or timely enough) to inform on-the-ground and in-the-water decision making. A study of the utility of primary scientific literature to coral reef MPA managers in Australia, Kenya and Belize found average publication lag times of more than three years for relevant scientific research and more than half of relevant scientific articles behind paywalls (arrangements in which access to a website or document is restricted to users who have paid to subscribe to the site).

Ideally, a wide range of organizations and institutions should contribute to connecting scientists with marine resource managers to work on pressing knowledge needs. Academic institutions need to recognize the value of and reward knowledge sharing activities in their hiring and promotion decisions. Funding organizations should – and many already do – promote and support collaboration and knowledge sharing as well as research. And scientists can become involved with “boundary organizations” that already facilitate collaboration and information flow between researchers and managers in many regions and scientific study areas. (Read about the work of a boundary organization working in the Western Indian Ocean.)

Even in the face of institutional constraints, however, there are many things that marine scientists as individuals can do to work more effectively with marine managers and to inform marine management. In this article, marine scientists, communicators, and funders who are successfully bridging the gap between scientific research and management in locations around the world share what they have learned about informing marine resource management.”

iceslogo“This benchmark workshop is organized to evaluate the current data and assessment methodology for several stocks and to propose improvements outside of the annual assessment environment.
The goal of a benchmark is consensus agreement on an assessment methodology that is to be used in future update assessments. This assessment methodology can be an analytical assessment, but can also be non-analytical, for instance based on trends in an assessment or in a selected set of (survey) indicators, with or without forecasts. The result will be the ‘best available’ method that ICES advice will be based on. Typically, a stock will be benchmarked every 3–5 years to keep pace with changing situations.”

Memo to Council on Atlantic Herring: Don’t Stop Now

cp_atlantic_herring_memo_council_16x9“Schools of Atlantic herring are hypnotizing to watch. Like many other small fish, they gather in enormous numbers—ranging from thousands to more than a million—and swirl in morphing shapes as they divide and reunite in their efforts to avoid lunging predators. Those hunters include whales, bluefin tuna, cod, and puffins, and the survival of those animals in the waters off the U.S. East Coast is linked to healthy populations of Atlantic herring and other small prey, known as forage fish. How many Atlantic herring are available as prey depends in part on how many are taken from the water through commercial fishing. And a great quantity of Atlantic herring can be caught in short order. The vessels pursuing Atlantic herring are industrial in scale: With football field-sized nets and enough space to store a million pounds of fish, these behemoths dwarf the quintessential New England fishing boat.”

The Bay of Bengal’s basin contains some of the most populous regions of the earth. No less than a quarter of the world’s population is concentrated in the eight countries that border the bay1. Approximately 200 million people live along the Bay of Bengal’s coasts and of these a major proportion are partially or wholly dependent on its fisheries2.

For the majority of those who depend on it, the Bay of Bengal can provide no more than a meagre living: 61% of India’s fisherfolk already live below the poverty line. Yet the numbers dependent on fisheries are only likely to grow in years to come, partly because of climate change. In southern India drought and water scarcity have already induced tens of thousands of farmers to join the fishing fleet3. Rising sea levels are also likely to drive many displaced people into the fishing industry.

Discardlessnews“European fisheries should operate without discards. This aim has been clearly expressed by both the European Union (EU) and other fishing nations in Europe, together with the overall intention to reduce the environmental impact of societies. In accordance with this, the landing obligation in the new EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) aims for a gradual elimination of discards of commercially exploited stocks on a case-by-case basis (EU, 2013). The landing obligation encompasses a subset of the catch only, whereby many species will still be legally discarded. This policy will thus lead to less discarding rather than discard-free fisheries. The name of our project reflects this important nuance.

DiscardLess will provide the knowledge, tools, and methods required for the successful reduction of discards in European fisheries. To achieve this, DiscardLess will work through collaborations between scientists, stakeholders and policy makers to support and promote practical, achievable, acceptable and cost-effective discards mitigation strategies, and to make the EU landing obligation functional, credible and legitimate.

The collaborative approach of DiscardLess will ensure that the developed tools, information and strategies will provide relevant, acceptable and cost effective means with a wide uptake in society which will result in the achievement of the goals of the landing obligation.”

Los recursos pesqueros son una excelente fuente de alimentación, pero, además, son un motor para la generación de empleo en las zonas costeras. Según la FAO, el suministro de pescado parala alimentación procedente tanto de la pesca extractiva (marina y continental) como de la acuicultura, proporciona en la actualidad más del 15% del suministro total de proteínas animales. Por otra parte, el comercio internacional de productos pesqueros ha vuelto a alcanzar una nueva cota máxima con una tasa de crecimiento anual del 5% en el pasado decenio. Estas estadísticas, sin embargo, no restan importancia a la preocupante situación debido al aumento de la presión de la pesca, que provoca el incremento del número de los recursos pesqueros sobreexplotados y agotados, pero también en recuperación.

Hoy se hace necesario un nuevo tipo de gestión con el que se responda con flexibilidad a la evolución de los recursos pesqueros, para asegurar una explotación estable y sostenible a largo plazo.

Microcredit for small-scale fishermen

flag-east-sardinia

For years, the local fishermen have been enduring the effects of the financial crisis. The region’s banking system is limited to a few operators with strict constraints for attributing loans. Fishermen cannot necessarily provide a typical guarantee, making it difficult for them to obtain loans. Because fishermen do not always fit the standard profile of a borrower, they can be categorised as ‘non-bankable’.

Recent discussions with these local fishermen made clear the need to provide them with a more accessible credit system to help fund their initiatives.

Many marine fish species – including the Madeiran sardine – are in danger of global extinction due to overfishing along the coast of western and central Africa, threatening food security in the region, according to the Eastern Central Atlantic Red List of Threatened Species published today by IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).

The report is the first complete assessment of the conservation status of 1,288 bony fish species – a group which comprises the vast majority of fish species – in marine waters from Mauritania to Angola, including offshore islands like Cape Verde. According to its findings, 37 of the assessed species are threatened with extinction and 14 Near Threatened – many of them important food sources. Other threats to those species include the degradation of habitats, pollution, climate change and invasive species, according to the report.

journal-pbio-2000537-g002“Overfishing threatens the sustainability of coastal marine biodiversity, especially in tropical developing countries. To counter this problem, about 200 governments worldwide have committed to protecting 10%–20% of national coastal marine areas. However, associated impacts on fisheries productivity are unclear and could weaken the food security of hundreds of millions of people who depend on diverse and largely unregulated fishing activities. Here, we present a systematic theoretic analysis of the ability of reserves to rebuild fisheries under such complex conditions, and we identify maximum reserve coverages for biodiversity conservation that do not impair long-term fisheries productivity. Our analysis assumes that fishers have no viable alternative to fishing, such that total fishing effort remains constant (at best). We find that realistic reserve networks, which protect 10%–30% of fished habitats in 1–20 km wide reserves, should benefit the long-term productivity of almost any complex fishery. We discover a “rule of thumb” to safeguard against the long-term catch depletion of particular species: individual reserves should export 30% or more of locally produced larvae to adjacent fishing grounds. Specifically on coral reefs, where fishers tend to overexploit species whose dispersal distances as larvae exceed the home ranges of adults, decisions on the size of reserves needed to meet the 30% larval export rule are unlikely to compromise the protection of resident adults. Even achieving the modest Aichi Target 11 of 10% “effective protection” can then help rebuild depleted catch. However, strictly protecting 20%–30% of fished habitats is unlikely to diminish catch even if overfishing is not yet a problem while providing greater potential for biodiversity conservation and fishery rebuilding if overfishing is substantial. These findings are important because they suggest that doubling or tripling the only globally enforced marine reserve target will benefit biodiversity conservation and higher fisheries productivity where both are most urgently nIUU

Aimed at limiting unwanted catches (notably of juvenile fish) or at reducing the impacts of fishing on nature (protected species and vulnerable habitats), EU technical measures in fisheries have, over time, developed into a complex set of prescriptive measures, which do not fully achieve their objectives.”

journal-pone-0169281-g003“Aquaculture is developing rapidly at a global scale and sustainable practices are an essential part of meeting the protein requirements of the ballooning human population. Locating aquaculture offshore is one strategy that may help address some issues related to nearshore development. However, offshore production is nascent and distinctions between the types of aquatic farming may not be fully understood by the public–important for collaboration, research, and development. Here we evaluate and report, to our knowledge, the first multinational quantification of the relative sentiments and opinions of the public around distinct forms of aquaculture. Using thousands of newspaper headlines (Ntotal = 1,596) from developed (no. countries = 26) and developing (42) nations, ranging over periods of 1984 to 2015, we found an expanding positive trend of general ‘aquaculture’ coverage, while ‘marine’ and ‘offshore’ appeared more negative. Overall, developing regions published proportionally more positive than negative headlines than developed countries. As case studies, government collected public comments (Ntotal = 1,585) from the United States of America (USA) and New Zealand mirrored the media sentiments; offshore perception being particularly negative in the USA. We also found public sentiment may be influenced by local environmental disasters not directly related to aquaculture (e.g., oil spills). Both countries voiced concern over environmental impacts, but the concerns tended to be more generalized, rather than targeted issues. Two factors that could be inhibiting informed discussion and decisions about offshore aquaculture are lack of applicable knowledge and actual local development issues. Better communication and investigation of the real versus perceived impacts of aquaculture could aid in clarifying the debate about aquaculture, and help support future sustainable growth.”
