Building an expert-judgement based model of mangrove fisheries

Building an expert-judgement based model of mangrove fisheries

This conference paper presentes a preliminary model of the spatial distribution of benefits to fisheries from mangroves. The preliminary model covers the environmental factors that determine the amount of fish, crustaceans, mollusks, and other fishery target species produced by mangrove areas (termed “potential fish production”) and the socioeconomic variables that determine the level of fishing in any given location.

It was developed by the project team working on the CCI Collaborative Fund project: Attaining Aichi Target 11: How well are marine ecosystem services secured by protected areas? and presented at the Proceedings 2nd International Symposium on Mangroves as Fish Habitat, Mazatlan, Mexico, 2014.
