Abstract
  • Focus groups were combined with surveys to inform policy making regarding precautionary measures to protect cold water coral (CWC). CWC represent complex environmental public goods involving irreversibility and uncertainty. Respondents believe CWC is valuable and should be protected. Use-values, particularly habitat for fish, dominated the focus group discussions, whereas non-use and intrinsic values were emphasised in the survey. The dilemma of implementing precautionary measures was highlighted as respondents rejected the use of temporary closures to gain information on CWC presence. Reasons were costs to fishers, or the rejection of the premise that lack of precautionary closures would prevent further damage.
