Rebuilding Global Fisheries
Current trends in world fisheries are analyzed from a fisheries and conservation perspective, finding that 63% of assessed fish stocks worldwide still require rebuilding, and even lower exploitation rates are needed to reverse the collapse of vulnerable species. Expand
Population diversity and the portfolio effect in an exploited species
Five decades of data are used to provide the first quantification of portfolio effects that derive from population and life history diversity in an important and heavily exploited species to demonstrate the critical importance of maintaining population diversity for stabilizing ecosystem services and securing the economies and livelihoods that depend on them. Expand
Biocomplexity and fisheries sustainability
Different geographic and life history components that were minor producers during one climatic regime have dominated during others, emphasizing that the biocomplexity of fish stocks is critical for maintaining their resilience to environmental change. Expand
Leadership, social capital and incentives promote successful fisheries
Examining 130 co-managed fisheries in a wide range of countries with different degrees of development, ecosystems, fishing sectors and type of resources demonstrates the critical importance of prominent community leaders and robust social capital for successfully managing aquatic resources and securing the livelihoods of communities depending on them. Expand
Uncertainty, resource exploitation, and conservation: lessons from history.
It is suggested that remarkable consistency in the history of resource exploitation is due to the following common features: wealth or the prospect of wealth generates political and social power that is used to promote unlimited exploitation of resources. Expand
Compensatory density dependence in fish populations: importance, controversy, understanding and prognosis
This work advocates an approach to compensation that involves process-level understanding of the underlying mechanisms, life-history theory, careful analysis of field data, and matrix and individual-based modelling. Expand
When can marine reserves improve fisheries management
Marine reserves are a promising tool for fisheries management and conservation of biodiversity, but they are not a panacea for fisheries management problems. For fisheries that target highly mobileExpand
