Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Currently, scientific advice on sustainable limits of exploitation assumes that each species can be considered in isolation and that the underlying productivity remains constant. However, this is an over-simplification and does not protect against environmental change and the full range of fishing pressures. This project aimed to develop a modelling capability and data resources to indicate how management plans for North Sea fish species might be set in the context of a fisheries management plan for the ecosystem as a whole.
