The conservation hierarchy principles have also recently been proposed by Booth et al. (2019) as a risk‐based framework for reconciling trade‐offs between shark conservation and fisheries objectives.
Though this has yet to be implemented in practice, the authours outline a holistic conceptual model for risks to sharks in fisheries, which includes biophysical, operational and socioeconomic considerations. They then demonstrate how this model, in conjunction with the Conservation Hierarchy action steps, can support risk-based least cost shark conservation.
Through providing examples from real-world fishery management problems, Booth et al. (2019) illustrate how the Conservation Hierarchy could be applied to a range of species, fisheries and contexts.
