Description

The Larkin Lecture

Trials and Tribulations of Ecosystem Based Management

Dr. Beth Fulton

CSIRO - Australia

Keynote Lecture with Reception to Follow in the AERL Building (2202 Main Mall)

Ecosystem based management has been held up as the ideal for more than 20 years. The concept has influenced management approaches in a number of countries around the world without being 100% successfully implemented. It has broadened the view of a number of regulatory bodies beyond just worrying about the most valuable or charismatic species in our ecosystems. However people still debate whether this is sufficient operationally, whether it is enough to shoehorn ecosystem considerations into institutional, governance and regulatory structures that are still built around management targeted at individual species. Model based explorations of options have shown that it's a decent start but that the more effort you can put into EBFM the better the pay off. So what are the data light extensions that will allow us to make this work regardless of the government budget?
