Pelagic ecology of diving seabirds: Determination of their movements and behavior by means of high resolution remote sensing devices

The Patagonian shelf constitutes and important reproductive and foraging habitat for several seabird species. Imperial cormorants (Phalacrocorax atriceps) are important top predators of the Patagonian Shelf ecosystem and face significant threats such as the incidental mortality in fishing nets and other operational interactions. Many of the solutions to these problems require accurate knowledge of their behavior and at-sea distribution. Research… Read Project SummaryPelagic ecology of diving seabirds: Determination of their movements and behavior by means of high resolution remote sensing devices

Sustainability of the Juan Fernández lobster fishery (Chile)

  • Dr. Billy Ernst, Universidad de Concepción, Chile

  • 2006

Benthic resources are harvested by small scale fisheries along most coastal regions of the world. These fisheries are often unregulated or have vertical management advice, whose plans are commonly molded after conventional prescriptions, originally conceived for industrial fisheries. At the same time, effective management practices established by tradition go unnoticed by fishery management and scientist. The spiny lobster (Jasus frontalis)… Read Project SummarySustainability of the Juan Fernández lobster fishery (Chile)
