This is a collection of reports and papers that were used to develop the Framework for Integrated and Habitat Evaluation (FISHE), as well as a selection of supporting materials that can be used during the six steps of the data-limited framework.

  • 41.
    A how-to guide to Froese's length-based sustainability indicators.
  • 42.
    A how-to guide for four Length-Based Assessment Methods: Catch Curve, MPA Catch Curve, The Mean Length Assessment (LBAR), and Length-Based Spawning Potential Ratio (SPR).
  • 43.
    A how-to guide for the Marine Protected Area-Based Decision Tree assessment method.
  • 44.
    A how-to guide for the Productivity and Susceptibility Analysis assessment model.
  • 45.
    Primer to guide use of Biomass Dynamics Assessment Method using Schaefer Depletion Indicators. This method estimates stock biomass and fishing mortality using catch, effort, and any available indices of relative abundance without the inclusion of stock age or length structure.
  • 46.
    An Excel spreadsheet for the PSA model, which can be used to enter data, keep track of source material, and calculate productivity, susceptibility, final vulnerability, and data quality scores for each species.

    This meta-analysis of the relationship between spawning potential and the normalized size and age of 123 marine species suggests that the so-called Beverton–Holt life-history invariants (BH-LHI; Lm/L∞, M/k, M × Agem) actually vary together in relation to life-history strategy, determining the relationship between size, age, and reproductive potential for each species. Although little realized, the common assumption of unique values for the BH-LHI also implies that all species share the same relationship between size, age, and reproductive potential. This implicit assumption is not supported by this meta-analysis, which suggests that there is considerable but predictable natural variation in the BH-LHI ratios and the relationships between size, age, and reproductive potential that they determine.

    A supplement to the Catch Share Design Manual, this how-to guide walks through the six-step framework presented in this website.

    Ecosystem-based fisheries management (EBFM) has emerged during the past five years as an alternative approach to single-species fishery management. To date, policy development has generally outstripped application and implementation. The EBFM approach has been broadly adopted at a policy level within Australia through a variety of instruments including fisheries legislation, environmental legislation, and a national policy on integrated oceans management. The speed of policy adoption has necessitated equally rapid development of scientific and management tools to support practical implementation. We discuss some of the scientific tools that have been developed to meet this need.
