1 EC INCO Contract No Mid-Term Incofish Workshop March, 2007 La Paz, Baja California Sur Workpackage 4

2 Partners Work Package 4 MCM DEAT: Marine and Coastal Management Branch of Environmental Affaire and Tourism, South Africa CEFAS: The Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science, United Kingdom UNI CONCEPCION: Universidad de Concepción, Chile USP: University of Sao Paulo, Brazil UNEW: The University of Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom UNIPAD: Università degli Studi di Padova; Italy ECNU: East China Normal University, China CRDOT: Centre de Recherches Oceanographiques de Dakar, Thiarone, Senegal UNIABDN: The University Court of the University of Aberdeen, United Kingdom CICIMAR: Centro Interdisciplinario de Ciencias Marinas del Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Mexico 10 institutions, 8 countries, 4 continents

3 Objectives: The overall goal of the “Ecosystem Modelling” workpackage is to provide standardized ecosystem models for all selected ecosystems. 1.- Compile and make available all data relevant for the construction of models for the selected LMEs 2.- Construct standardized ecosystem models; WP Work closely with WP 5 on the size and placement of protected areas, and Explore patterns of response of impacted ecosystems, testing hypothesis on resilience and impact of fisheries on ecosystems. 4.- Contribute to the exploration of ecosystem attributes in a two levels strategy, one within each model exploring impact of fishing, compatibility of conservation and exploitation under sustainable use of the ecosystems, resilience, among others. The second level will be a meta- analysis, searching patterns of response of aquatic ecosystems (to human activities, ecosystem attributes, structural and functional behaviour, etc...) 5.- At least five scientific publications must be published and are expected to be of high impact Work Package 4

4 Deliverables: D4.1 Data relevant for ecosystem modelling disseminated through WP-1 (Obj-1) D4.2 Ecosystem models available for all incofish ecosystems (Obj-2) D4.3 Spatial ecosystem models available for all selected LME’s (Obj-3) D4.4 Further development of models, interactions with WPs, final report (Obj-3,4) D4.5 At least five scientific publications related to this WP to be published or submitted by WP members before the end of the project (Obj-5) Work Package 4

5 Emphasizing Ecosim 15 OK With one exception D4.2 was fulfiled between Nov-06 & Jan-07 (one model was added to those programmed)

6 Moved to March March 2007 Emphasizing Ecospace Date for D4.3 is immovable since is associated to D5.2 (MPAs). Date & objective for 4th workshop to be confirmed. Present work

26 Deliverable D4.3 According with the project strategy for Deliverable D4.3, it is expected that some spatial models constructed within the WP4 will move towards WP5 to explore MPAs. In this sense, 9 of the 13 WP4-models listed will approach MPAs. Deliverable D4.4 Deliverable D4.5 Concerning Deliverable D4.4 (exploration of patterns of response of impacted ecosystems, testing hypothesis on resilience and impact of fisheries on ecosystems); WP4 members suggested several topics and pointed out some ideas to be worked during the project. These ideas are under discussion and will be reported as publications which is directly associated with the compliment of Deliverable D4.5. Objectives 3 and 4
