Abstract or Summary
  • The paper puts forward a model of the Pearl River Delta (PRD) fishery in the South China Sea that integrates the ecological, social and economic costs and benefits of fisheries activities in a multidisciplinary framework. In particular, In particular, we developed integrated model by linking a regional Social Accounting Matrix (SAM) to an ecological model constructed by Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE) software. Then based on the ECOST model, the costs and benefits of five fishing métier are compared from economic, ecological and social dimensions in monetary terms. Finally, a series of dynamic simulations for a 10-year period are examined according five scenarios to explore the impact of fishing effort reduction on fishing communication. Key results from prediction (2005-2015) and policy simulations illustrate that fisheries of PRE are geared toward short-term economic profits at the expense of ecological gains and the whole group of societal benefits associated with fishing. However, the status quo can be improved to better levels by reducing fishing effort.
