Science magazine article about CA's MPAs

Postby diverdida » Sun Mar 28, 2010 11:28 am

from Rikki Dunsmore, of MB Sanc Foundation:

Hello all,

A new article in Science magazine titled “ Science meets politics off California’s Coast: protecting marine resources involves a mix of cutting edge science and political compromise, as California officials have learned” talks about the importance of networking MPAs, the California MLPA process and economic and fisheries benefits of the MPAs to local communities and fishing constituents.

See Science Magazine article for full article. Highlights are below:

Science-Based Ocean Protection is a Win-Win

California's ocean is more than just an iconic attraction--it's also an economic powerhouse, driving millions of dollars in revenue each year for tourism, recreation, fishing and other businesses. And all of these industries stand to gain when the state's science-based marine protected area network is complete.

This Science Magazine article highlights new scientific tools and research that enable California to implement the Marine Life Protection Act in a way that will maximize ecological and economic benefits. Local stakeholders and State decision makers are using bioeconomic computer models to design a network of ocean sanctuaries that will boost both fisheries health and profits.

According to UC Santa Barbara's Chris Costello, protecting the places where fish and shellfish feed and breed will increase the sustainability and productivity of fisheries. Bioeconomic models suggest that southern California’s kelp rockfish fishery would double in value under the plan currently proposed for the region.

A recent study from Spain proves it can be done—researchers found a network of marine reserves in the Balearic Islands increased the value of the local lobster fishery by about 10% annually over the 10 year study period.

Is there a way to obtain a copy of the article without becoming a member of AAAS?

Try a library, where you can make a copy of it.
