Development of a procedural framework for action plans to reconcile conflicts between the conservation of large vertebrates and the use of biological resources: fisheries and fish-eating vertebrates as a model case

Objective

The objectives of FRAP are:
a) the development of a procedural framework for action plans that allow a reconciliation (where conflicts arise) of the conservation of large vertebrates with the use of the same biological resources by humans;
b) illustration of the framework using conflicts between the conservation of large fish-eating vertebrates and fisheries as a model. These objectives include an ecological and socio-economic assessment of the positive and negative interactions between fisheries and the conservation of fish-eating vertebrates, the development of efficient ecological and socio-economic mitigation/compensation strategies, and their integration into a framework that allows an effective reconciliation between the vested interests of stakeholders in biodiversity conservation and those in biodiversity use.
