Evaluating proposed Marine Protected Areas in California - guidelines and models



In this seminar I will review the approach adopted in California to set up a network of MPAs. I will discuss both the institutional process and the methods used to determine if a specific proposal meets the guidelines of the legislation. Spatially explicit multi-species multi-fleet models are part of the evaluation methodology.
