Transcript of Five Minute Thesis - This area is closed. But what about the fish?

What is Project 3.1? The Journey - A thesis in 5 minutes THIS AREA IS CLOSED. The
Significance? But what about the fish? They wanted an area closed to trawling, to protect the bottom habitat for their crab fishery In Labrador fishermen worry about the fish and the environment Are there successful examples of
fishermen involvement in closed areas? In Canada fishermen asked... About the management of closed areas.
Intent? Fisher Involvement? Goals
and objectives? Its about asking questions ... There are many names for closures....
MPA, NTZ, MRZ, FMZ, Multiple Use, Closed Box, Marine Park, Marine Reserve.... What is the worry? Who is worried about fish? Fishermen, Communities, Scientists, Governments, General Public..... And in Tanzania, fishermen worry about the fish and environment On Mafia Island, communities live inside a multiple use marine park Healthy environments, more fish, sustainable livelihoods.... I think we do. Do we all want the same thing? Less fish, reduced livelihoods, changing environments.... We must work together to
achieve a sustainable solution for all It's all about collaboration = What is the spectrum of these tools and their objectives? Can closures account for fishery
productivity, and conservation? Do they work? ? What types, and how? There is a push for Marine Protected Areas (these are mainly for conservation),

here But what about livelihoods, . is there room for both? Ecosystem Based Fisheries Management (or, as I like to say...
it's about you, me, the fish and the sea!) How are closures around the world doing?

What can we learn from this?

Where are the best examples of closures involving fishers? conservation fisheries productivity Look at what has happened to fish and the habitat Altogether, this will bring.... New insights - about incorporating
fishers knowledge in closed areas... Global best practice template on
the use of closed areas ... Effectiveness of a fishery closure,
from a case study in Labrador Recommendations for
management There is increasing population, more fishing, more calls for protection......
so, we need more closures right? More collaboration= more compromise,
but we need to work to find this: how, why, what, and who are they for.... Discovering if, and how a tool can work to provide sustainable fisheries and conservation benefits. About resilience:
Adaptive? Connectivity? Spillover?
Climate Change? About biology and ecology:
Fish populations? Productivity?
About effort and success:
Fishing effort? A success? To whom? ? But, to have this, and this, (and hopefully the right ones) to fishers, but also to managers, academics, industry, and government. (and closed areas are a tool) So...
