Integrating marine protected areas with catch regulation

  title={Integrating marine protected areas with catch regulation},
  author={Ray Hilborn and Fiorenza Micheli and Giulio A. De Leo},
Previous models of marine protected areas (MPAs) have generally assumed that there were no existing regulations on catch and have frequently shown that MPAs, by themselves, can be used to maintain both sustainable fish stocks and sustainable harvests. We explore the impact of implementing an MPA in a spatially structured model of a single-species fish stock that is regulated by total allowable catch (TAC). We find that when a stock is managed at maximum sustainable yield, or is overfished… CONTINUE READING
