Title: Evaluating management strategies to optimize coral reef ecosystem services: Ecosystem Model Data for Puako, Hawaii
Short Name: Puako Ecosystem Model Data
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018
Abstract:

Coral reefs provide a wide range of ecosystem services that are valued differently by different users. Managers are challenged to comprehensively address the full suite of pressures that act simultaneously on these ecosystem state variables and dynamics. We developed a decision-support tool using an ecosystem model, Ecopath with Ecosim, that ranks the efficiency of potential management strategies in evaluating ecological and socio-economic trade-offs based on multiple indicators for coral reef ecosystem services in Puako, Hawaii Island. Our results indicate that current management is inadequate to prevent further declines in coral reef resources and that improved fishery management can mitigate the detrimental effects of expected bleaching-related coral mortalities on the ecosystem services in the next 15 years. The scenario that minimized conflicts between stakeholders was "Only Line Fishing" and to a lesser extent a reduction in fishing effort.

Results include the biomass (tons per square kilometer) for several groups of marine organisms (invertivores, coralivores, planktivores, browsers, grazers, sharks, reef fishes, sea turtles, invertebrates, corals, algae, and plankton) for 2017 and 2032 under the current and alternative management scenarios and the relative performance of the indicators under six management scenarios in 2032 and compared to current management.

The data are available from the Dryad Digital Repository: https://doi.org/10.5061/dryad.4sh45

Purpose:

The main objective of this study was to explore the performance of land-based and fishery management scenarios in terms of their ability to reverse local declines in condition, to improve the provision of ecosystem services that benefit human users, and to enhance the long-term future of the local reef.

NOAA Coral Reef Ecosystem Program (CREP) Data Sharing Recommendations, version 9.0 updated August 12, 2015:

CREP welcomes the opportunity to collaborate on research issues contributing to the scientific basis for better management of marine ecosystems. CREP has a very diverse set of field activities that generates large volumes of data using an array of data collection protocols.

The following recommendations are for your consideration as you use this data:

1) Data analyses should take all field exigencies into account. The most effective way to do this would be active collaboration with CREP principal investigators.

2) In all presentations, product releases, or publications using data generated by CREP, proper acknowledgement of both CREP and the individuals responsible for data collection is expected. Citing the DOI (if available) is preferred, a non-DOI example is listed below.

3) If you collect or generate data for the same study areas, CREP requests that you share relevant information on complimentary data collections.

4) Those receiving data are strongly urged to inform the CREP Data Management Team of any errors and discrepancies that are discovered during the course of using these data. They are further urged to bring to the attention of the Team all problems and difficulties encountered in using these data. This information is necessary in order to improve the collections and to facilitate more efficient and economical data processing and retrieval. The users are asked to supply copies of any missing data that may be located, and to provide information as to significant subsets and special aggregations of data that are developed in using the material provided.

Description:

Input data for Ecopath Puako modeling project. These data include: Table 1: Functional groups and vital rates. For each functional group it states, a number, trophic level, biomass (t/km2), the production to biomass ratio (per year), consumption to biomass ration (per year), the ecotrophic efficiency (unitless) and the production to consumption ratio. Table 2: Diet matrix. Each row is a prey group and each column is a predator. The values in the matrix are the proportions of prey items in the diet of the predator. Table 3: Vulnerability Matrix. Each row represents a prey group and each column a predator group. The values represent the vulnerability of that prey group to the predator. A high value represents a top-down control and a low value represents a bottom-up control.

Technical Environment

Description:

Model input and outputs (Excel files) were generated using Ecopath with Ecosim version 6.4.3.

Data Quality

Representativeness:

Model output data provide a range of potential answers based on the available data and should not be used for tactical management

Quality Control Procedures Employed:

Model dynamics were validated with a hindcast simulation (1980-2016). Reconstructed linear catch time series per gear type from 1980 and 2007 were loaded into Ecosim for validation and to fine-tune the model by adjusting fishing effort and so minimize the residuals between predicted and observed fish biomass and fish landings temporal data points (from DAR and TNC) using a least-square fitting criterion.

Lineage

Lineage Statement:

Input data was collected for the Ecopath with Ecosim model (EwE) from Hayes et al (1982). Vital rates and diet came from Weijerman et al (2013). Model validation data was supplied by the Hawaii Division of Aquatic Resources (POC Dr. WJ Walsh) and the Nature Conservancy (POC D. Minton). The model output data are generated with the EwE model. All steps are available in Weijerman et al (in prep) J Applied Ecology.
