Abstract

The marine environment is heavily affected by fishing pressure and knowing how different management strategies affect the persistence of marine species is crucial for ensuring sustainable fishing. Models used within the fisheries management strategies evaluation context have been implemented in the past decades from traditional single species methods to an ecosystem-based approach, but there are still uncertainties on the effectiveness of these models. This thesis aims to understand the drivers of marine species persistence coupling network-based methods and spatially explicit population viability analyses (PVA). This thesis focuses on marine species of south-eastern Australian waters, a reg..
