Application of an Ecological Risk Assessment Framework for Oceans Management of Large Ocean Management Areas and Marine Protected Areas: Case study for the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area and Oceans Act Marine Protected Area of British Columbia

Description

The Pacific region Large Ocean Management Area (LOMA) boundaries: the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA).

The establishment of the Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA) creates a need to develop ecosystem-based ocean management. An Ecological Risk Assessment Framework (ERAF) for ecosystem-based management has been developed to evaluate how human activities threaten components of valuable marine ecosystems. This project will apply this framework to the management of PNCIMA.
