Responsible fisheries management is of increasing interest to the scientific community, resource managers, policy makers, stakeholders and the general public. Focusing solely on managing one species of fish stock at a time has become less of a viable option in addressing the problem. Incorporating more holistic considerations into fisheries management by addressing the trade-offs among the range of issues involved, such as ecological principles, legal mandates and the interests of stakeholders, will hopefully challenge and shift the perception that doing ecosystem-based fisheries management is unfeasible. Demonstrating that EBFM is in fact feasible will have widespread impact, both in US and international waters. Using case studies, underlying philosophies and analytical approaches, this book brings together a range of interdisciplinary topics surrounding EBFM and considers these simultaneously, with an aim to provide tools for successful implementation and to further the debate on EBFM, ultimately hoping to foster enhanced living marine resource management.

The ecosystem approach to the management of oceans and their resources was consolidated in Agenda 21. Practical application of this approach is still in early stages of development by regional organizations for fisheries, and for the marine and coastal environment. This publication contains a brief description of marine Regional Fishery Bodies (RFBs) and the Regional Seas Conventions (RSCs) noting the origins, status, geographic coverage and basis for consideration of the ecosystem approach by each. This publication reviews the relationship and mutual relevance of the work carried out by RFBs and RSCs, especially in areas relating to biodiversity of species, habitat, marine environment quality, climate change, land-based pollution of the marine environment, and in the monitoring and assessment which applies to these areas. It is suggested that as ecosystem considerations and indicator frameworks are increasingly factored into fisheries management, the functionalities of RFBs and RSCs will need to be adapted in a practical, cost effective way to meet future needs. Concrete suggestions are made for options that may lead to enhanced cooperation on ecosystem-based fishery management.

Ecosystems based fisheries management (EBFM) requires an understanding of not only key ecosystem functioning, but also ecosystem indicators to measure and communicate ecosystem changes in meaningful ways. Ecosystem processes are highly complex and indicators sensitive to pressures within an ecosystem can be an efficient communicator of ecosystem health, making them an effective tool for environmental and fisheries management. The Chatham Rise extends 1400km east off central New Zealand where subtropical and sub- Antarctic waters converge, providing conditions for high productivity and biodiversity. As New Zealand’s most important fishing grounds, a NIWA scientific fisheries trawl survey has been conducted on the Chatham Rise on an almost annual basis since 1992. These surveys are designed to monitor the abundance of target species, and provide the weight and length composition of fish species. This forms an opportunity to examine patterns in fish communities and to develop ecosystem indicators. This study explores the Chatham Rise to develop a set of fish based indicators for EBFM. Candidate indicators were reviewed and investigated using univariate techniques. Multivariate techniques such as principal components analysis, clustering methods and Sequential T-test Analysis of Regime-Shifts techniques were applied to detect intrinsic and extrinsic shifts in ecological communities. Lastly Dynamic Factor Analysis was used to identify indicators which were complementary, creating an indicator set. The ecological indicator suite included metrics of proportion of target species, average vulnerability, Margalef’s species richness, Hill’s N1, average taxonomic diversity and Large Fish Indicator (LFI). This suite of indicators is ecologically representative and communicable, making it an effective tool for EBFM on the Chatham Rise. This indicator suite shows the Chatham Rise experienced a decrease in target species during 2000-2005 with a recent recovery, with a highly vulnerable ecosystem found in the Shallow North region. High variation in this region suggested an approaching tipping point while other all regions experienced only small shifts in community functioning during the time series. While this study has focused on the Chatham Rise, methods of indicators development may be applicable to other New Zealand surveys like the sub-Antarctic or inshore trawl surveys, thus facilitating New Zealand’s progress towards EBFM.

As the ecosystem-based trend in fisheries management continues to be implemented worldwide, a thorough background of this new management approach and resulting implementation strategies is needed. Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management in the Western Pacific presents a full picture of the process changes used in switching from target species based management to EBFM, using a region that is at the forefront of this widely accepted movement. Ecosystem-Based Fisheries Management in the Western Pacific is the outgrowth of a series of three workshops convened by the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management council. The book follows the logical approach of each workshop, beginning with an assessment of the current state of fisheries management, transitioning through the data sources and modeling systems used to advance EBFM, and ending with practical methodologies for more thorough global implementation in the future. Contributed by experts from the Pacific regions as well as the UK and Non-pacific States, this book is one of the first available compendiums on this important movement and will be applicable to fisheries scientists and researchers, fisheries managers, policy makers, and social scientists worldwide

Ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) is viewed as a potential goal for fisheries management. EBFM is based on a more holistic and ecosystemic approach to management that differs greatly from the current single-species approach practiced in the United States. This study uses interviews to investigate the perceptions and opinions of councilmen and fishermen from the New England and Mid-Atlantic areas on aspects of EBFM and its potential implementation in their respective regions, while also gauging the acceptance of fishermen of the ideas expressed by the councilmen during the interviews. Objectives include determining how councilmen would define EBFM and their perceptions on certain concepts that pertain to EBFM as well as how fishermen view the environment and current fisheries practices. A total of 16 councilmen from the New England and Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Councils were interviewed face-to-face or via phone and 31 fishermen surveys from NJ, ME, CT, NY, VA, RI, MA, and NH were collected via mail and analyzed. Results obtained from the survey can be used to inform councilmen of what aspects of EBFM fishermen are willing to accept and which they are less likely to accept. Ultimately this will allow councilmen to implement regulations that will yield more compliance and will therefore be more effective.

Showing how big-picture patterns can help overcome the failures of conventional management, this book is ideal for students, researchers and professionals involved with marine fisheries. It explores not only the current practice of the 'ecosystem approach' to fisheries management but also its critical importance to even larger perspectives. The first section gives a valuable overview of how more and more of the complexity of real-world systems is being recognized and involved in the management of fisheries around the world. The second section then demonstrates how important aspects of real-world systems, involving population dynamics, evolution and behavior, remain to be taken into account completely. This section also shows how we must change the way we think about our involvement in, and the complexity of, marine ecosystems. The final chapters consider how, with the use of carefully chosen macroecological patterns, we can take important steps towards more holistic management of marine fisheries.
