News and Updates

Check out a scientific paper recently published on “Area‐based management of blue water fisheries: Current knowledge and research needs.” Authors include several Council Science and Statistical Committee members and staff.

Open-ocean marine ecosystems are always changing, so a “set it and forget it” approach may not always be the best way to manage these areas. This paper takes a deep dive on linking management objectives (from biodiversity to economics to climate change) with appropriate area-based management tools (static MarineProtectedAreas to dynamic ocean management).
