Abstract or Summary
  • This study compares globally available integrated ecological-economic models with focus on use and implementation in scientific and advisory contexts. The Ecosystem based Approach to (Fisheries) Management (EAM) calls for an understanding and management of fisheries and other uses of the marine environment that explicitly take into account ecological, economic and social considerations. Though it is acknowledged that only human activities can be managed, their optimal management will depend on the ecosystem in which they take place and the ecosystem goods and services. Hence, the direct and indirect impact of fisheries on the marine ecosystem and vice versa must be assessed and predicted. This entails a move from single species to multispecies and to ecosystem assessments. Also, successful marine management needs involve economic and social sustainability of the activities. Therefore, explicit incorporation of economic and social components of fisheries and marine management needs be included in management evaluation. Accordingly, tools need to be developed and implemented, which take the ecological-economic-social-governance interactions into account. The aim of this study is to compare relevant models from around the world, to discuss their development and level of implementation, and to develop a sound basis for evaluating and comparing these tools, including their robustness. It will analyse the needed characteristics for the use in advisory context through a comparative and descriptive matrix and summary table. Based on this analysis we make re-commendations for future research, development and advisory structures that can increase the level of use and implementation of the models.
