Wednesday, December 12, 2018. 3:00PM. Webinar: Ecosystem-based fisheries management in the Southern Ocean: Antarctic krill. Jefferson Hinke, Southwest Fisheries Science Center. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
Formed from the desire to minimize ecosystem-level impacts of harvesting, the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Living Marine Resources provided an early form of ecosystem-aware fisheries management. It specified ecosystem-level considerations for management and was implemented with a desire for a form of feedback management system that accounted for the status and trends of harvested and indicator species. Over the three decades since its inception, a precautionary approach to fisheries management has prevailed while approaches to a feedback-based approach have been developed and considered. This talk overviews contributions by AERD and general progress toward EBFM in the Antarctic krill fishery in the Southern Ocean.
