For the week of 17 October 2016
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
The South African Journal of Science has published, The Marine Protected Areas debate: Implications for the proposed Phakisa Marine Protected Areas Network. The author examines the arguments used in a recent debate where parties, including Ray Hilborn and Colin Attwood, "examined the need for MPA expansion; the effect of MPAs on fisheries; and the role of MPAs in fisheries management, food security and biodiversity protection; and interrogated targets to increase ocean protection."
