Marine Ecosystem Management in the San Juan Archipelago
MetadataShow full item record
Klinger will present an overview of marine ecosystem management in the San Juan Islands. The general approach: engage in a local, bottom-up planning process for ecosystem-based management, using science to support decision-making. She will review existing protection measures and recent county actions. She will describe her efforts to assess San Juan County's planning efforts, following the Nature Conservancy's "5-S" planning framework: 1. SYSTEMS. 2. STRESSES. 3. SOURCES. 4. STRATEGIES. 5. SUCCESS MEASURES. The Marine Stewardship Area Plan, generated through the 5-S process, was submitted to review by the public and marine managers. Finally, Klinger will present the results of her research project about aquatic nuisance species.
