30 Apr 2018 by eve | outreach-material   Strengthening the GEF Marine and Coastal portfolio - GEF LME:LEARN Services brochure
A key element of improved ocean governance is mainstreaming cooperation and coordination between Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs), Marine Protected Areas (MPAs), Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) and Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) projects with ove...
11 Sep 2017 by eve | publication   Ecosystem Overfishing in the Ocean (2008)
Fisheries catches represent a net export of mass and energy that can no longer be used by trophic levels higher than those fished. Thus, exploitation implies a depletion of secondary production of higher trophic levels (here the production of mass...
11 Sep 2017 by eve | publication   Fishing through Marine Food Webs (2006)
A recurring pattern of declining mean trophic level of fisheries landings, termed "fishing down the food web," is thought to be indicative of the serial replacement of high-trophic-level fisheries with less valuable, low-trophic-level fisheries as...
11 Sep 2017 by eve | publication   Regional fishery management organizations and large marine ecosystems (2016)
Regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) addressing the management of living marine resources have a long history, beginning in 1811 with the North Pacific Fur Seal Convention followed by the International Pacific Halibut Conventionin 1...
07 Sep 2017 by eve | publication   Restoring and Protecting the world's large marine ecosystems: An engine for job creation and sustainable economic development (2016)
Some of the most significant threats to the sustainability of the world's 66 Large Marine Ecosystems (LME) – invasive species, coastal hypoxia, overfishing, marine debris and ocean acidification – are due to a combination of market and/or policy f...
01 Sep 2017 by eve | publication   Fishery production potential of large marine ecosystems: A prototype analysis (2016)
Attempts to define the fishery production potential of marine systems based on energetic considerations have an extensive history. Bottom-up control of fish production has now been demonstrated in many regions of the world ocean supporting the gen...
01 Sep 2017 by eve | publication   Accelerated Warming and Emergent Trends in Fisheries Biomass Yields of the World's Large Marine Ecosystems (2009)
Information on the effects of global climate change on trends in global fisheries biomass yields has been limited in spatial and temporal scale. Results are presented of a global study of the impact of sea surface temperature (SST) changes over th...
31 Aug 2017 by eve | publication   Long-term changes and recurrent patterns in fisheries landings from Large Marine Ecosystems (1950–2004) (2012)
The regional dynamics of industrial fisheries within Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) boundaries were investigated by means of a historical-descriptive approach. Landings data from the Sea Around Us Project database were used to detect trends in tot...
24 May 2017 by eve | publication   Pathways between Primary Production and Fisheries Yields of Large Marine Ecosystems (2012)
The shift in marine resource management from a compartmentalized approach of dealing with resources on a species basis to an approach based on management of spatially defined ecosystems requires an accurate accounting of energy flow. The flow of e...
24 May 2017 by eve | publication   Potential consequences of climate change for primary production and fish production in large marine ecosystems (2012)
Existing methods to predict the effects of climate change on the biomass and production of marine communities are predicated on modelling the interactions and dynamics of individual species, a very challenging approach when interactions and distri...
24 May 2017 by eve | publication   Regional fishery management organizations and large marine ecosystems (2015)
The LME approach was fleshed out in the 1980s and initiated as both the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and country projects, beginning in the mid-1990s. LMEs have fisheries as a major component to be addressed under the LME five-module concept....
24 May 2017 by eve | publication   The application of satellite remote sensing for assessing productivity in relation to fisheries yields of the world's large marine ecosystems (2011)
In 1992, world leaders at the historical UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) recognized that the exploitation of resources in coastal oceans was becoming increasingly unsustainable, resulting in an international effort to assess, ...
24 May 2017 by eve | publication   A new imperative for improving management of large marine ecosystems (2002)
A five-module assessment and management methodology is being tested that moves the countries toward adopting practical joint governance institutions through place based management. This LME approach engages stakeholders, fosters the participation ...

The Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for Integrated Management, Sustainable Development and Protection of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) was adopted and signed by the Ministers of the Three Countries (The Republic of Angola, ...
10 Sep 2014 | sap | project: 2600   Strategic Action Programme for the Conservation of Biological Diversity (SAP BIO) in the Mediterranean Region
The principal objective of SAP BIO is establishing a logical base for implementing the 1995 SPA Protocol, that is providing Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Conventions, international and national organisations, NGOs, donors and all other acto...
10 Sep 2014 | sap | project: 1188   Strategic Action Programme: Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem
This Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Guinea Current Large Marine Ecosystem (GCLME) is a negotiated policy document under the aegis of the IGCC (later GCC) which describes policy, legal and institutional reforms and investments needed to ...
03 Sep 2014 | sap | project: 3524   Strategic Action Program for the Sulu-Celebes Sea Large Marine Ecosystem
The SAP focuses on the conservation of small pelagic fisheries to ensure that the welfare of economically marginalized communities estimated at about 40 million people who depend on these seas for food and livelihood. Small pelagic fishes like sar...
