  • My presentation today is titled, Analysis of Spatial and Socioeconomic Baseline Information and Fishing Profiles in Support of the Joint Management Plan Review Process An Application of Ocean Communities 3E Analysis Network I’d like to begin by acknowledging my colleague on this project …Dr. Astrid Scholz
  • Analysis of Spatial and Socioeconomic Baseline Information and Fishing Profiles in Support of the Joint Management Plan Review (JMPR) Process

    1. 1. Analysis of Spatial and Socioeconomic Baseline Information and Fishing Profiles in Support of the Joint Management Plan Review (JMPR) Process: 9 March 2005 Charles Steinback and Astrid Scholz An Application of Ocean Communities 3E Analysis Network (OCEAN)
    2. 2. Outline <ul><li>Who and why </li></ul><ul><li>Spatial interpretation of fisheries data </li></ul><ul><li>Using local knowledge provided by fisherman to create socioeconomic fishery profiles for the study area </li></ul>
    3. 3. Who we are <ul><li>Ecotrust is a non-profit think tank and community development organization </li></ul><ul><li>Working to build Salmon Nation—where economy, ecology, and equity are in balance </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborate with federal and state agencies, universities, industry, tribes & NGOs </li></ul>
    4. 5. Why <ul><li>Ecotrust was retained by: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary (CBNMS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary (GFNMS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary (MBNMS) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In support of the Joint Management Plan Review (JMPR): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To collect, compile and analyze socioeconomic information pertaining to commercial and recreational fisheries in and around sanctuary waters. </li></ul></ul>
    5. 7. Outline <ul><li>Who and why </li></ul><ul><li>Spatial interpretation of fisheries data </li></ul><ul><li>Using local knowledge provided by fisherman to create socioeconomic fishery profiles for the study area </li></ul>
    6. 9. Overview of Fisheries Data <ul><li>Source: CDFG fisheries data </li></ul><ul><li>Objective: understand the data and what it can tell us </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Characterize the CDFG data </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>generate a baseline for subsequent analysis </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Illustrate the kinds of questions that can be investigated with the data </li></ul></ul>
    7. 10. Fisheries Data – Types <ul><li>There are three distinct data categories: </li></ul><ul><li>Data recorded by fish buyers (landing receipts) </li></ul><ul><li>Data reported by fishermen (logbooks) </li></ul><ul><li>Fishery independent data e.g. observers and surveys </li></ul>
    8. 11. CDFG Landing Receipts <ul><li>Thematic Variables </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Species caught </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Gear type used </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Pounds landed and price received </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Spatial Variables </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Port landed </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>10 min x 10 min block where catch occurred </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Temporal Variables </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Per fishing trip, from 1981–2004 </li></ul></ul>
    9. 15. Outline <ul><li>Who and why </li></ul><ul><li>Spatial interpretation of fisheries data </li></ul><ul><li>Using local knowledge provided by fisherman to create socioeconomic fishery profiles for the study area </li></ul>
    10. 17. Interviews with fishermen <ul><li>25 interviews where conducted, from Bodega Bay to Half Moon Bay </li></ul><ul><li>Each interviewee was asked to </li></ul><ul><ul><li>identify, within their maximum forage area for a specific fishery, which areas are of critical economic importance, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>and to rank these areas using a weighted percentage; this was done through an imaginary “bag of 100 pennies” that they distributed over the fishing grounds </li></ul></ul>
    11. 22. Next Steps <ul><li>Draft report – end of March, 2005 </li></ul><ul><li>Develop a customized desktop and Internet GIS (“OceanPlanner”) that will allow users to collect, analyze, and interact with the data – to begin summer 2005 </li></ul>
