Lynne is one of the co-authors of a paper led by Sandra Diaz that has just been published in Science.
We are part of an exciting International Horizon 2020 project, “Mission Atlantic,” which has just been launched and will map and assess sustainable development of the Atlantic Ocean.
Fruit of several years of work, Lynne and colleagues have updated and re-fitted the EwE model for the southern Benguela (1978-2015) by capturing our improved understanding and including newly available datasets.
Congratulations to Louise who has just got the second paper from her PhD published in Frontiers for Marine Science.
Congratulations to Greg for having got the first paper published from his PhD research. In this article in Maritime Studies, Greg analyses barriers to, and opportunities for alternative seafood marketing of linefish in the southern Cape.
Lynne, Astrid and Louise are very pleased to have contributed to teaching the first summer school of our EU-funded project to a good 25 participants from Africa, South America and Europe.
Congratulations to Clara Steyn and Emily Weigum for having graduated as Masters in Conservation Biology and Applied Ocean Sciences, respectively. It was also the first time for Dr Marieke Norton, Post-Doc in our group, to join faculty on stage!
Louise has just published a non-specialised summary of her PhD in The Conversation. The article discusses how to get linefishers in the southern Cape to be more involved in decision-making that affects them.
Based on 18 months of Marieke's ethnographic fieldwork for her PhD, Marieke and Astrid suggest ways in which marine resource lave enforcement can be evaluated at the level of individual fisheries compliance inspectors. We show how individual assessments can be scaled up to station, regional and provincial levels, where they can also contribute to, e.g., Ecological Risk Assessments.
As an ecosystem researcher in the Benguela, Lynne made a contribution to a synthesis paper on ocean boundary currents and how these are being monitored globally. Read the paper here.
Remember when Ivan Martins visited us from Saõ Paulo during his PhD research? Now the paper stemming from Ivan's and Louise's collaboration during this time has been published in Human Ecology. It compares the vulnerability of fishing communities in the southern Brazil Bight and in the southern Cape. Find the paper here.
