Oceans & Fish

Oceans and coastal environments are home to tremendous biodiversity, provide food to over a billion people, and livelihoods for hundreds of millions more. But fisheries are common-pool resources and therefore subject to systematic overexploitation. Economic analysis, in combination with sound biological assessments, can help create the political will and technical knowledge to implement strong fisheries management (or co-management) systems, marine protected areas, and ocean infrastructure that maintain the economic value of fisheries and oceans over the long term. CSF’s Oceans and Fish program provides training for local resource managers and targeted economic analyses to guide public investments and policy decisions.

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

In partnership with Oceana, CSF is conducting 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 will estimate the benefits from the creation of the proposed MPA and compare 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.

Fisheries Economics, Policy and Conservation Training of Trainers - Indonesia 2018

Of the 20 experts we trained on CSF's unique teaching technique, 78% stated that the training was valuable, and 100% would recommend this training to a colleague. 

"As a government person, I never knew how to teach like CSF demonstrated to me. All I knew before was to jam all of the information into a Powerpoint presentation and have 50+ slides to explian to people in a 2 hour period, which was never effective. This training was a real turning point in my life. Now I know how to engage audiences using the skills I received. I cannot wait to implement this new way of teaching at my next opportunity."

Nova publicação: estratégias para conservar manguezais em áreas protegidas brasileiras

É com grande prazer que a CSF-Brasil lança sua nova publicação "Os valores dos serviços ecossistêmicos dos manguezais brasileiros, instrumentos econômicos para a sua conservação e o estudo de caso do Salgado Paraense".

Cerca de 90% dos manguezais no Brasil estão localizados em Áreas Protegidas (AP). No entanto, existem deficiências importantes em termos de sustentabilidade financeira e gestão de recursos nas AP do Sistema Nacional de Unidades de Conservação (SNUC), afetando os estoques de capital natural, a biodiversidade e as comunidades locais que dependem dos recursos da natureza.
