Developing a participatory approach to the management of fishing activity in UK offshore Marine Protected Areas

 

Deliverables

  • A fully-tested governance framework and participatory process to integrate stakeholders within the management review process, seeking to build awareness and consensus;
  • A model and associated guidance to predict ecological outcomes of different management scenarios, testing this with real-life examples. Recognising the limitations of such models, the project will also focus on how to overcome data limitations to achieve effective management;
  • Educational materials aimed at stakeholders designed to raise awareness of the marine environment, the fishing industry and MPAs as a conservation tool;
  • Stakeholder engagement manual aimed at regulators and stakeholders, designed to support active participation in adaptive management processes. This will include technical information on data requirements and associated thresholds; and outlining the participatory process tested by the project and lessons learned.
