Stanford scientists show: Trawling ban did not hurt fishing communities

navama – technology for nature supported University Stanford scientists with tracking data analytics.  The results are published in Frontiers in Ecology and Environment. For more details see the article Leveraging vessel traffic data and a temporary fishing closure to inform marine management.

Fisheries who complied with a moratorium in the Adriatic Sea maintained catch levels by fishing in other areas. The findings help justify extending regional protection and provide insight for ocean management elsewhere.

We are proud, that our support helps to develop new marine protected areas.
