  • 15 The evolution of LME management regimes: The role of adaptive
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2005
      Source:Large Marine Ecosystems, Volume 13
      Author(s): Timothy M. Hennessey
      This chapter details the importance of governance and socioeconomics to the establishment and functioning of LME management regimes. There is review of the research literature on natural resource regimes to identify hypotheses regarding stages of regime development, types of regimes, and regime effectiveness. The chapter discusses the Global Environmental Facility mandated process and the contribution this makes to the establishment of a management regime for the BCLME. It is noted that most of the questions and activities associated with this process require an understanding of governance and socioeconomics. The chapter introduces the concept of the ecology of governance. This refers to the complex array of institutions, programs and processes designed to understand and manage the complexity of natural ecosystems. The GEF process proved to be an extremely valuable mechanism for guiding the development of the regime, particularly the agenda setting, collective choice making and initial institutional design stages. The importance of institutions having a learning capacity provided by adaptive management has been discussed. Also discussed are the work of Kai Lee on adaptive management and the opportunities and constraints identified for those doing adaptive management in a governance context. Following Elinor Ostrom's work on institutional analysis and design for natural resources management, related are the conditions she identifies to what is required for effective LME management. It has been argued that governance and socioeconomic concepts and tools should be a fundamental feature of training programs designed to build capacity in each of the LMEs. The chapter investigates the degree to which the GEF process helped the formation, function and effectiveness of LME management regimes. An assessment has been done of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem's emerging management regime, using concepts and hypotheses from the research literature on natural resource regimes.

  • 8 Portfolio management of fish communities in large marine ecosystems
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2005
      Source:Large Marine Ecosystems, Volume 13
      Author(s): Steven F. Edwards , Jason S. Link , Barbara P. Rountree
      The single-species approach to fisheries management is under fire as valuable fish stocks around the world continue to collapse despite 25 years of extended federal jurisdiction and intensive government regulations. Consensus is mounting for ecosystem-based approaches, but few tangible alternatives have been offered. We propose a two-part portfolio approach to multi-species management which integrates the fish and fisheries, socioeconomic, and governance modules of the LME model. The portfolio framework is a technical methodology which explicitly integrates fish stocks that are jointed by ecology (e.g., predation) and fishing technology (e.g., mixed-species fisheries), and selects combinations of species biomass and other stock attributes (e.g. fish size, recruitment patterns, growth rates) that balance expected aggregate returns for society against the risks associated with ecological, market, and institutional uncertainties. The technical framework is complemented by property rights institutions that remove the wedge between harvest and stock rights now in place in government regulatory regimes. New property rights institutions are needed which create incentives for harvesters to regard fish stocks as capital assets that potentially produce benefits for society indefinitely, internalize spillovers among fisheries caused by ecological and technological interactions, and reduce uncertainty through investments in information.

  • 9 Modelling, forecasting and scenarios in comparable upwelling ecosystems:
           California, Canary and Humboldt
    • Abstract: Publication date: 2006
      Source:Large Marine Ecosystems, Volume 14
      Author(s): Pierre Fréon , Jürgen Alheit , Eric D. Barton , Souad Kifani , Patrick Marchesiello
      The three eastern boundary ecosystems comparable to the Benguela ecosystem (BCE) display differences and commonalities. The California (CalCE) and Humboldt Current (HCE) ecosystems are continuous topographically, whereas the Canary Current ecosystem (CanCE) is interrupted by the Gulf of Cadiz and the Canaries archipelago. All have similar regimes of equatorward flow over shelf and slope associated with upwelling and a subsurface poleward flow over the slope, though in the HCE multiple flows and counter-flows appear offshore. All systems exhibit year round upwelling in their centre and seasonal upwelling at their extremes as the trade wind systems that drive them migrate north and south, though the HCE is strongly skewed toward the equator. All systems vary on scales from the event or synoptic scale of a few days, through seasonal, to inter-decadal and long term. Productivity of each system follows the upwelling cycle, though intra-regional variations in nutrient content and forcing cause significant variability within regions. The CanCE is relatively unproductive compared to the CalCE and HCE as a result of differences in large scale circulation between the Pacific and Atlantic. The latter two systems are dominated by El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) variability on a scale of 4–7 years. Physical modeling with the Princeton Ocean Model and the Regional Oceanic Modeling System has advanced recently to the stage of reproducing realistic mesoscale features and energy levels with climatic wind forcing. Operational forecasting by these models with assimilation of sea surface temperature and other data is successfully implemented in CalCE. On longer time scales, the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory model is able to hindcast El Niño variability over the long term up to 2 years in advance. Empirical ecological models in all three systems have attempted prediction of permissible catch level (fractional Maximum Sustainable Yield), recruitment, catches or onset of migration with lack of continued success, partly because discontinuous or inadequate observations hamper model implementation and assessment. Moreover, empirical models tuned to particular environments fail when fundamental regime shifts occur. One of the most successful approaches is that of intensive monitoring of catch and environmental parameters linked to an informal Operational Management Procedure (OMP) to inform fisheries management off Peru. This OMP contributed to preservation of anchovy stock during the 1997-8 El Niño but remains to be formalized or tested under varying conditions. Prediction on time scales of global warming are uncertain because physical climate models still disagree on whether upwelling will intensify or weaken. Possible scenarios on decadal scale based on warming or cooling of waters in the Eastern Boundary Current systems can be proffered, albeit with little confidence at present. Future approaches for all systems, including the BCE, will in the long run likely combine coupled atmospheric/ocean models with biological process models. Judicious application of purely statistical modeling based on inherent time series properties will assist, though such techniques are unable to cope with regime shifts.
