Dr. Juliano Palacios Abrantes – Marine fishes do not need visas: managing shared fish stocks in a changing world
Regulatory boundaries and species distributions often do not align. This is especially the case for marine species crossing neighbouring Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs) known as transboundary fish stocks. Such movements represent a challenge for fisheries management, as policies tend to focus at the national level, yet international collaborations are needed to maximize long-term ecological, social and economic benefits of transboundary stocks.
In this presentation Dr. Palacios Abrantes will take you through five years of research on this topic covering global, regional and local studies. The results presented here have direct implications for managing fisheries targeting transboundary species, highlighting the need for strengthened effective and equitable international cooperation.
