    Assessment and communication of environmental risks in coastal aquaculture, Chapter 6: Case studies, Risk assessment of the potential decrease of carrying capacity by shellfish farming, Part 6.2b

    Description
    This report (in 21 parts) presents a set of objectives, goals, methodologies and a checklist for assessment and communication of environmental risks potentially associated with coastal aquaculture. Six case studies illustrate the use of environmental risk assessment methodologies in coastal aquaculture discussing benthic community changes, shellfish farming, interbreeding of wild and escaped farm cod, fish farming waste, soil salinisation due to low-salinity shrimp farming and coastal aquaculture's potential effects on algal blooms.

    Coastal basins on the edge: cumulative effects of multiple human activities where land and ocean meet

    Description
    This brief report examines the cumulative effects of multiple human activities on the ecosystems of semi-enclosed marine systems (SEMS) (including coastal seas, bays and gulfs). It identifies the major threats to SEMS, the consequences of human activities on SEMS, how these consequences in turn affect human well-being as well as recommendations for management of these areas. This report was published in 2008.

    Depleted marine resources: an approach to quantification based on the FAO capture database

    Description
    This report uses data (covering the years 1950-2002) drawn from the FAO capture fishery production database to measure the extent and rate of decline of catches to identify a list of species who are classified as 'depleted' and are candidates for stock restoration measures. The depleted species are listed by FAO fishing area including the Indian Ocean and the Western Central Pacific. This report was published by the FAO in 2004.
