In early 2017, six researchers were awarded a grant as part of CSF’s Indonesia Marine Fellows Program (MFP). The six fellows were selected based on their research topics, which seek to answer pertinent questions about fisheries management challenges in Indonesia. The fellows were also paired with mentors who are experts in their respective fields.

The economic value of the recreational Red Abalone fishery in northern California

Economic benefits of the California halibut fishery

Recreational anglers in the United States collectively spend millions of days and millions of dollars per year fishing in coastal and ocean waters. The state of California ranks second in the nation for recreational saltwater fishing, second only to Florida. The California halibut, Paralichthys californicus, is one of the most highly sought-after fish for recreational anglers due to its large size, delicious taste and challenging fishing behavior. Over 60,000 trips are taken per year by boat anglers targeting this species.

CSF has received a grant from Blue Solutions to support curriculum development on conservation finance. This will add to the current suite of Blue Solutions trainings that include marine spatial planning, climate change adaptation, and integrating ecosystem services into marine and coastal development.

Scenario Planning of West Papua as a Conservation Province

Through support from DFID/UKCUU, CSF Indonesia led a scenario planning process of West Papua in relation to West Papua having recently been established as a Conservation Province (Provinsi Konservasi). The purpose of scenario planning was twofold. First was to develop a comprehensive understanding of what the future may hold for the sustainability of development in West Papua. Second was to establish a well-rooted vision that the stakeholders of West Papua will choose as the vision for the future, based on the shared knowledge of key driving forces, the interplay among these forces and actors, and the directions the interactions may result on.

With support from the Andes Amazon Fund, CSF is conducting an analysis on multiplier effects of tourism spending in Peru’s national parks. Peru has created eleven national parks and numerous other protected areas in its Andes Amazon region covering approximately 18 million hectares. While efforts are currently under way to address existing funding gaps, the long term financial sustainability of Peru’s protected areas requires a substantial, long-term increase in allocation of public funds. Furthermore, Peru’s biological importance justifies expansion of the existing protected area system in the Andes Amazon, further increasing funding required.
