Endangered Species, Ecosystem Integrity, and Human Livelihood

Aburto-Oropeza O
et al
October 2016

The authors use the story of the vaquita marina in the Upper Gulf of California where a proposed fishing gear switch neglects to consider local livelihoods, community traditions and heritage, ecological integrity and ultimately, increases dependence on fishing subsidies. The authors suggest that the intervention is a ‘quick fix’ that lacks long term vision and fails to integrate considerations of human wellbeing.
