Closure strategies as a tool for fisheries management in metapopulations subjected to catastrophic events

Little, Lorne; Grafton, R Quentin; Kompas, Thomas; Smith, Anthony

Description

Spatial management measures in the form of no-take areas used in fisheries management can provide a buffer against catastrophic events. Dynamic area closures, like rotational closures, have also been used as a management tool particularly for sessile organisms. In this study, bioeconomic models are developed to investigate dynamic closure strategies for use as a management tool in the harvest of a metapopulation consisting of two local sub-populations. The models provide an optimal strategy...[Show more]
