In multi-species fisheries, technical and social interactions between different components of the fisheries can make it difficult to maximize economic yield. Furthermore, the different fish stocks contributing to the overall catch may present different levels of natural variability leading to difficulties in determining optimal management strategies. Bio-economic performances of multi-species...
Marine scientists and stakeholders are increasingly advocating ecosystembased
fishery management (EBFM). However, the way to operationalize
such EBFM remains controversial. The viability approach can be a relevant
modelling framework for EBFM as it accounts for dynamic complexities,
uncertainties, risks and sustainability objectives balancing ecological,
economic and social dimensions together with...
The coastal fishery in French Guyana is a challenging case study for the implementation of the ecosystem based fishery management. Although the current situation of this small scale fishery could be considered as satisfactory, the viability of the fishery can be questioned. Indeed according to demographic scenarios, the growth of...
With the development of the ecosystem approach to f
isheries (EAF), fisheries management is
increasingly required to deal with multiple, often
conflicting objectives. In this context, the
stochastic co-viability approach has been proposed
as a useful modeling framework as it allows
for the combined representation of complex fisherie
Individual Transferable catch-Quotas (ITQs) have become a popular management tool to reduce excess competition and foster economic efficiency in marine commercial fisheries. They have increasingly been used in more complex multispecies fisheries, where the by-catch of non-targeted species is common. In these fisheries, the reduction of discards is also being...
