Ibrahim Boubekri is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Population-Environment-Development Laboratory (LPED) at Aix-Marseille University (AMU) in France. He is an early career researcher with a Master’s degree in Marine Bioresources and PhD in Marine Sciences. During the past 10 years, Ibrahim has studied the role of MPAs as an integrated management tool for coastal areas in Algeria; SW Mediterranean. Ibrahim’s current research interest focuses on the social-ecological systems of artisanal fisheries.

- Research project: Integration of Local Ecological Knowledge (LEK) on the management of artisanal fisheries in Algeria: A socio-ecological approach within the context of Marine Protected Areas.
The aim of this paper is to examine fishermen's Local Ecological Knowledge (LEK) relating to Marine Protected Area (MPA) planning and the overlap with fisheries management in the future “Taza” MPA (Algeria, SW Mediterranean). The case study focuses on both commercial and recreational coastal fisheries from the fishing harbour of Ziama (NE Algeria)....
Nowadays, recreational fisheries (REC) have a great impact on marine ecosystems and create conflicts with other human coastal activities such as commercial small-scale fisheries (SSF). In the proposed “Taza” marine protected area (MPA) (Algeria, SW Mediterranean), recreational boat fishing is poorly regulated and its catches remain unmonitored. In...
The establishment of marine protected areas (MPAs) in Algeria faces several obstacles, particularly lack of legislation and poor management of local resources. The attempt to establish an MPA at Taza (Gulf of Béjaia, SW Mediterranean) is part of a broader project to set up a network of MPAs in the Mediterranean basin. The MPA of Taza was first prop...
Artisanal Small-Scale Fisheries (SSFs) are a primordial and very diverse activity in the Mediterranean, also within Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). This diversity is explained in terms of target species, gears, and fishing strategies. The main objective of this work was to investigate the spatio-temporal dynamics of artisanal SSFs of the future MPA...
Establishment of marine protected areas (MPAs) in Algeria faces several obstacles, particularly lack of legislation and poor management of local resources. The attempt to establish an MPA at Taza (Jijel, Algeria; SW Mediterranean) is a part of a broad project to set up a network of MPAs in the Mediterranean basin. Creation of an MPA in Taza was fir...
The aim of this project is to assess the social acceptability relating to Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) planning by examining fishermen's Local Ecological Knowledge (LEK) in the future “Taza” MPA (Algeria, SW Mediterranean).
The ultimate objective of this project would be to find the right balance between the ecological aspects through the protection of biodiversity and socio-economic conditions by maintaining local artisanal fishing activity.
The aim of this project is to demonstrate the effectiveness of MPAs as an integrated and sustainable tools for the protection and management of coastal areas.
