Example text

Assess potential of MPAs/temporal measures as management tools. • Apply conservative and precautionary approach and refer to FAO Code and CBD. • Reliable planning for future income and food security or for new activities is compromised, and fishing pressure should not be increased until a knowledge base is established. • Encourage traditional customary use of biological resources compatible with sustainable use and conservation. • Apply 50% rule of thumb for sexual maturation estimate to reduce catch of immature fish of key commercial species.

Finally, it outlines some of the main challenges associated with development and application of indicators, including reaching a suitable compromise between the need for simplicity and the conflicting need for realism in a system of indicators, the need to institutionalise the set of indicators, capacity limitations and information gaps and uncertainty. Chapter 13 discusses the use of scientific information, in a broad sense, in fisheries management. The need to use the best available information as a basis for management decisions and actions is a fundamental requirement of the precautionary approach and of good management in general.

Considering ecosystem and interspecific interactions is important because fishery production depends not only on the target species but also on the carrying capacity of its environment and on the other species on which it depends for food or shelter, or, indeed, those that might prey upon or parasitize it. Marine fishes and invertebrates depend on the environment in which they live, in direct and often complex ways, and more realistic models are only possible by factoring in these interdependencies and the feedback loops of which they form a part.
