Fisheries Management Area 711 Training

In 2010, Indonesia was divided into eleven Fisheries Management Areas (FMA) by the Ministry of Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (MMAF). The FMA were selected based on their fish resources and biophysical environments, and include capture fisheries, aquaculture, conservation, research, and fisheries development activities. FMA 711, which encompasses the Karimata Strait, Natuna Sea, and the South China Sea, is a strategic fishing ground in Indonesia, with an estimated fishery potential of 1.1 million tons/year, or 11% of the total catch for the country. Six provinces are part of this FMA: Riau, Bangka Belitung, South Sumatra, Jambi, Riau Islands, and West Kalimantan.

Cost-Benefit Analysis for the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area, Peru

In partnership with Oceana, CSF conducted a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for the creation of the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area (NRMPA) located off the coast of central Peru. The CBA estimated the benefits from the creation of the proposed MPA and compared these with costs associated with managing and others resulting from the establishment of the MPA. Roughly 100 kilometers offshore, NRMPA has the potential to be an important icon for marine conservation in Peru and globally while also protecting a source of marine wildlife and resources from future overfishing and pollution threats.

New publication launch: strategies for conserving mangroves in Brazil's protected areas

CSF-Brazil is pleased to announce the launch of a new publication (in Portuguese): "The values of ecosystem services of the Brazilian mangroves, economic instruments for its conservation and the Salgado Paraense case study".

Roughly 90% of mangroves in Brazil are located in protected areas (PA). However, there are important deficiencies in financial sustainability and resource management that affect natural capital stocks, biodiversity and thus, local communities.
