  1. 1. Fisheries Policy, Science & Fishermen <ul><li>Narrow focus of scientific management advice </li></ul><ul><li>=> need for eco-system approach </li></ul><ul><li>Mapping the un-mapped </li></ul><ul><li>Fisheries Management mainly from EC at large scale and focus on biology nearly to the exclusion of social and economic dimensions </li></ul><ul><li>=> need for “stakeholder engagement” to increase legitimacy and assess regulatory impact </li></ul><ul><li>Participatory GIS </li></ul>Sophie des Clers 17 June 2008 Mapping for Sustainable Communities
  2. 2. Mapping the un-mapped (1-Fishing) <ul><li>Local scale activity maps in the Thames estuary </li></ul><ul><li>Fishing activities outside Harwich </li></ul><ul><li>=> Fishermen communicate </li></ul><ul><li>=> Fishermen stake their grounds in the face of increasing development at sea </li></ul><ul><li>=> Fishermen demand joined-up policies (transport, industry, environment, fisheries, …) </li></ul>
  3. 3. Mapping the un-mapped (1-Fishing activities) Central Ports Northern Ports Southern Ports Greater Thames Estuary 2000-01
  4. 4. Mapping the un-mapped (1-Fishing)
  5. 5. Mapping the un-mapped (1-Fishing)
  6. 6. Map the un-mapped (2-Ecology) <ul><li>Seasonality and essential fish and shellfish habitats </li></ul><ul><li>Climate change effect on marine species (starting) </li></ul><ul><li>=> science not ready to respect lay experts? </li></ul>
  7. 7. Mapping the un-mapped (2-Ecology)
  8. 8. Mapping the un-mapped (2-Ecology) Voluntary Marine Biodiversity reporting
  9. 9. Participatory GIS <ul><li>Greater Thames Estuary: individual maps put together and validated by “focus” group </li></ul><ul><li>FisherMap in Finding Sanctuary in SW: cited as an example of “stakeholder participation” - or not really? </li></ul><ul><li>Climate change effects on marine species: back to individual maps, similar to National Biodiversity Network reporting, bring on retired fishermen </li></ul>
