An assessment of the biological indicators for the Eastport Marine Protected Area (MPA): Fs70-5/2017-001E-PDF

a case study in support of an ecosystem goods and services valuation of MPAs /

“The Eastport Marine Protected Area (MPA) was designated in 2005 as part of Canada’s overall MPA Network under the Oceans Act. Data have been collected continually since 1997, representing a rich data source related to the main conservation objective: protection of a viable lobster fishery. As such, it was selected as a case study in the determination of ecosystem goods and services (EGS) valuation for MPAs. Biological indicators are required to inform the process including: abundance, size structure, estimate of berried females and the catch per unit effort as compared to other areas without protection. This research document provides an analysis of the required data, as available, for the EGS study and ancillary information that can help to provide context and further scrutiny where applicable or required"--Abstract, p. iv.
