A talk by Dr Bryce Stewart, Lecturer in Marine Ecosystem Management at the University of York. Marine protected areas (MPAs), where activities such as fishing may be restricted, are widely promoted by conservationists as one of the key ways to protect and recover our seas. However, they are often meet with staunch resistance by the fishing industry who claim there is little evidence for them working in the cool temperate seas around the UK anyway. By presenting a series of case studies from his own research around the UK, Bryce will demonstrate how MPAs can benefit not only conservation but also fisheries and public well-being.
