Forage Fish in the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem:
Ecological Linkages, Current Catches and Values
Andres Cisneros-Montemayor, (Canada)
Rashid Sumaila, UBC Fisheries Centre (Canada)
I begin my talk by identifying the fish species that inhabit the California
Current Large Marine ecosystem (CCLME). Next, I categorize these
species into predator-prey and forage and non-forage fishes. I then present
the current catches, landed values, payment to labour (wages), capital
(profit) and payment to the resource owners (resource rent) from the forage
and non-forage species in the CCLME. The goal of this contribution is to
lay the foundation for developing an ecosystem-economic model of the
CCLME to determine the optimal use of forage fishes in the ecosystem.
