Identifying Ecologically and Biologically Significant Areas on Seamounts - Workshop report

Identifying Ecologically and Biologically Significant Areas on Seamounts

Seamounts are major topographic features on the high seas and form distinctive habitats in areas that would otherwise be dominated by sedimentary plains (Clark et al. 2010). They are typified by biota that is distinct from species in surrounding sedimentary areas and can be extremely vulnerable to disturbance (Clark et al. 2010). They are a focus for conservation within national boundaries but are not specifically managed on the high seas.
A workshop, organised by GOBI and Censeam and supported by Sloan Foundation, took place at the end of 2010 with three primary goals:
-Determine suitable data for identification of EBSAs (Ecologically and Biologically Significant Areas) for seamounts
-Develop a process for the identification of priority EBSAs for seamounts
-Identify candidate EBSAs form existing seamount data and knowledge.
This report describes the provisional process for identification of EBSAs and gives an example from the South Pacific Ocean.

Évaluation Économique de la Gestion des Eaux de Ballast : une Directive

Évaluation Économique de la Gestion des Eaux de Ballast : Une Directive

Le but de cette directive est d’assister les administrateurs maritimes ou d’autres agences de direction travaillant sur la gestion des eaux de ballast à évaluer et quantifier autant que possible les conséquences économiques potentielles d’introductions involontaires d’espèces marines. Cette compréhension des conséquences économiques va à son tour favoriser la prise de meilleures décisions pour la réduction du risque des espèces exotiques envahissantes marines (EEE) ainsi qu’une meilleure préparation et planification d’une réaction et en particulier sera une source d’information pour le développement d’une Stratégie Nationale de Gestion des Eaux de Ballast (voir la Monographie GloBallast No.18). …

Economic Assessment for Ballast Water Management: A Guideline

The aim of this guideline is to aid maritime administrators, or other lead agencies working with ballast water management, to assess and quantify (as appropriate and possible) the potential economic consequences of unintended marine species introductions. Such economic understanding is intended to support sound decision making in relation to IAS risk reduction, preparedness and response planning, and in particular as a source of information for the development of a National Ballast Water Management Strategy (see GloBallast Monograph No. 18). …
