In 2019, Conservation Strategy Fund (CSF) and our partner Oceana conducted a cost-benefit analysis (CBA) to assess the creation of the proposed Nazca Ridge Marine Protected Area (MPA) located off the coast of central Peru. Our analysis estimated the benefits from the creation of a proposed MPA 100 kilometers offshore and found that the benefits to conserving the marine ecosystem far outweighed the costs of management.
Located in the Sulawesi Waters and North Halmahera of Indonesia, Fisheries Management Area 716 (FMA 716) is one of the most thriving fisheries in Indonesia, known especially for its contingency of small pelagic fish, which live in the pelagic zone of the ocean ranging from the surface of the ocean to the near bottom. As one of the FMAs in the Indonesian archipelago, FMA 716 plays an important role in the development of Indonesia’s marine and fisheries sector. Out of 118 pelagic species found within the area, FMA 716 contains 25 species, offering a rich potential for fishing in the area.
Conservation Strategy Fund is proud to announce our membership with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the world’s oldest and largest global environmental network and a global authority on protecting the natural world. By bringing together top experts and organizations, IUCN aims to forward conservation work and advance global sustainable development in over 160 countries.
