Abstract or Summary
  • In this paper the emphasis is put on an important aspect of renewable resource use that was disregarded until now. It is the evolution of environmental carrying capacity which is traditionally interpreted as a maximal population level that can be supported by the environment (or by habitats of which it consists). Hence we adapt the Gordon-Schaefer model with constant carrying capacity by incorporating time-dependent carrying capacity that determines the state of habitats. They are subject to some biological processes (habitat rehabilitation) as well as to human aggressions (in particular habitat degradation due to fishing). Based on the developed model, we reassess the recommendations considered as a benchmark for resource managers until recently. Under simple hypotheses on the form of habitat (carrying capacity) dynamics, the current study has shown the importance of the latter for the design of management tools. When dynamic patterns of habitats are not taken into account, fishery recommendations based on Gordon-Schaefer model can be aberrant and lead to the collapse of the fishery. The presented model allows not only to enrich the design of management tools but also to assess the performance of artificial reefs, a promising ecosystem-based tool widely used in some coastal areas. The economic benefits of artificial reefs are still not well studied and represent a challenge to take up. Since artificial reefs are conceived as replacement for natural habitats, they assume the same role as these latter. Therefore the structure of our model seems appropriate to evaluate this particular management tool.
