Delia Bense-Kang talks with researchers Ian Kelmartin, Katherin Osborn, and Eric Bjorkstedt, about their MPA Baseline Monitoring projects.

“MPAs are one part of the management tool box….they serve as an insurance policy for fisheries, potentially enhancing some reproductive output, but also giving us an idea of what does an un-fished system look like so we can better ground truth our management models,” states Eric Bjorkstedt, NMFS Fisheries Oceanographer and Adjunct Dept. of Fisheries Biology at HSU.
