About this book

Marine Managed Areas and Fisheries, with an introduction by Ray Hilborn, will present the latest views on the use of MPAs or Marine Managed Areas for fisheries management. It will contain a wide range of case studies including the Chagos archipelago, South Georgia, the Caribbean, the North Sea, Florida, Hawaii, the Great Barrier Reef, California, the Mediterranean and the Phoenix Islands Protected Area. It is the intention of the editors that the volume presents a series of evidence-based rather than advocacy-driven contemporary reviews.

Dr. Magnus Johnson is a Senior Lecturer in Environmental and Marine Sciences at the University of Hull. Having spent his formative years in the Shetland Isles, immersed in fishing culture, he has always had a strong relationship with the sea and an affinity for fisherfolk. He has research interests in an eclectic array of topics including shrimp eyes, cleaner fish, krill behaviour, tropical ecology, shrimp taxonomy, lobster ecology and the interaction of windfarms and fisheries. He recently edited a volume in the Advances Series on Nephrops norvegicus. He is an associate editor for the Journal of Crustacean Biology and consultant editor for the Marine Stewardship Council's Science Series. He is currently the Hull University lead on an 3 million FP7 project that is developing hatchery technology for Nephrops and looking at protocols for improving their survival as discards. In his spare time Magnus is a member of the Slow Fish movement which advocates better knowledge for the consumer of what we are eating, easier access to quality local marine produce and a "broad footprint lightly trod".

Jane Sandell has been the Quota Manger for the Scottish Fishermen's Organisation for just over five years. After finishing a postgraduate degree in Fisheries Science at the International Fisheries Institute at Hull University, she joined the Yorkshire and Humber Seafood Group, where she managed fisheries development projects for the region. In 2006, Jane joined the Scottish Fishermen's Federation as a Policy Officer, taking the lead on a variety of policy themes including a number of marine spatial planning issues. Although primarily employed to manage the quota for 200 UK registered fishing vessels, a considerable amount of Janes time is spent writing, negotiating and advising on fisheries policy at European, UK and domestic level including taking the Scottish industry lead on the implementation of the new Common Fisheries Policy. In addition to her professional experience, Jane has a good understanding of the trials and tribulations of running demersal fishing vessels.
