A decade of implementing an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries for Southern African fisheries (2015)
This is the third publication produced by WWF describing the progress made towards implementing an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) in the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) region over the last decade. This publication builds on the two previous reports by Nel et al. in 2007 and Petersen et al. in 2010 and reviews those earlier assessments and updates them, presenting the reports of all the ecological risk assessments (ERAs) undertaken in Namibia and South Africa between 2010 and 2013, as well as the report of a training workshop held in Luanda, Angola on 18-19 May 2011. The report also tracks the history of EAF implementation and reviews the tools developed through the BCLME project. It includes a practical guide to facilitating ERAs and Review workshops and provides a set of recommendations to guide the future implementation of an EAF in the region.
