Effects of experimental harvesting on recruitment of an alien mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis
Successful fisheries management is underpinned by an understanding of the processes that underlie the population dynamics of exploited stocks. This study considered the effects of experimental harvesting on recruitment of ...
Experimental harvesting of Mytilus galloprovincialis: Can an alien mussel support a small-scale fishery?
(Elsevier B.V., 2007)
In an effort to stimulate new fisheries and address historic imbalances in access to fishing rights, there has been a recent focus on the development of small-scale fisheries in South Africa. To assess the biological ...
Resilience and elasticity of intertidal communities in response to harvesting of the alien mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis
(Elsevier B.V., 2008)
Besides the direct impacts of exploitation on target species, indirect effects on non-target species are unavoidable and find expression in changes in community structure. We quantified the effects of experimental harvesting ...
Changes in habitat complexity resulting from sequential invasions of a rocky shore: implications for community structure
Worldwide, marine rocky shores are being modified by alien species, but their successive impacts are rarely recorded. We documented sequential invasions of Marcus Island on the west coast of South Africa by comparing ...
