New research shows sustainable fishing and conservation can coexist

The Marine Protected Area covers important Grey-headed Albatross colonies © John Dickens“Our oceans are in trouble. Globally, poor fishing practices are directly damaging to marine wildlife, and overfishing can deplete food resources for animals such as seabirds and seals. However, research by BirdLife’s Marine Programme, in association with scientists from the British Antarctic Survey and the RSPB (BirdLife in the UK), shows that under current climate conditions, sustainable fisheries can exist alongside conservation measures for seabirds and seals in a well-managed Marine Protected Area. Our research shows that when robust mechanisms are put in place by those managing marine environments – such as appropriate spatial and temporal limitations to fisheries – these facilitate the conservation of seabirds and seals while allowing commercial fishing to occur in a regulated manor.”
