|Event||Can Ecosystem-based Deep-sea Fishing be Sustained?: International Scientific Workshop - France, Neuville-Bosc, France|
Duration: 31 Aug 2010 → 3 Sep 2010
|Workshop||Can Ecosystem-based Deep-sea Fishing be Sustained?|
|Period||31/08/10 → 3/09/10|
|Other||Can there ever be a truly sustainable deep-sea fishery and if so, where and under what conditions? Ecosystem-based fisheries management requires that this question be addressed such that habitat, bycatch species, and targeted fish populations are considered together within an ecosystem context.|
To this end, we convened the first workshop to develop an ecosystem approach to deep-sea fisheries and to ask whether deep-sea species could be fished sustainably. The workshop participants were able to integrate bycatch information into their framework but found it more difficult to integrate other ecosystem indicators such as habitat characteristics.
