Comparing species and ecosystem-based estimates of fisheries yields
Three methods are described to estimate potential yields of commercial fish species: (i) single-species calculation of maximum sustainable yields, and two ecosystem-based methods derived from published results for (ii) ...
The importance of human dimensions research in managing harmful algal blooms
(Ecological Society of America, 2009-02-10)
Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are natural freshwater and marine hazards that impose substantial adverse impacts on the human use of coastal and marine resources. The socioeconomic and health impacts of HABs can be considerable, ...
Determining the structure of the United States marine instrumentation industry and its position in the world industry
(Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 1988-11)
This report is a general, but comprehensive, description and analysis of industrial organization in the field of marine electronic instrumentation (MEl), a broadly defined "industry," which until now has received little ...
Aquaculture and capture fisheries : a conceptual approach toward an integrated economic-ecological analysis
This study presents a framework for analyzing the interactions between aquaculture and capture fisheries in the context of ecosystem-based management. We extend a model of the economic and ecological systems in coastal ...
Determinants of injuries in passenger vessel accidents
This paper investigates determinants of crew and passenger injuries in passenger vessel accidents. Crew and passenger injury equations are estimated for ferry, ocean cruise, and river cruise vessel accidents, utilizing ...
Development of an integrated economic and ecological framework for ecosystem-based fisheries management in New England
We present an integrated economic-ecological framework designed to help assess the implementation of ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) in New England. We develop the framework by linking a computable general ...
Modeling the Total Allowable Area for Coastal Reclamation : a case study of Xiamen, China
This paper presents an analytical framework to estimate the Total Allowable Area for Coastal Reclamation (TAACR) to provide scientific support for the implementation of a coastal reclamation restriction mechanism. The logic ...
River dolphins can act as population trend indicators in degraded freshwater systems : comment
(Ecological Society of America, 2015-07)
Marine harmful algal blooms, human health and wellbeing : challenges and opportunities in the 21st century
Microalgal blooms are a natural part of the seasonal cycle of photosynthetic organisms in marine ecosystems. They are key components of the structure and dynamics of the oceans and thus sustain the benefits that humans ...
Dividing up the pie : whales, fish, and humans as competitors
Similarly structured food web models of four coastal ecosystems (Northern California Current, Central Gulf of Alaska, Georges Bank, southwestern Antarctic Peninsula) were used to investigate competition among whales, ...
