... In other fishing rights systems, such as small-scale inland fisheries in central Europe, protected areas are regularly installed and enforced by fisher communities who have the sovereignty to devise their own rules and regulations (Alcala et al., 2005;Galal et al., 2002;Gilchrist et al., 2020;Hamilton et al., 2012).

... For example, in Solomon Islands an 8.1 magnitude earthquake followed by a tsunami in April 2007 resulted in rapid, massive uplift of large sections of coral reefs and mangrove ecosystems in areas of Western Province, and severe damage to reefs of western Choiseul from wave energy. Monitoring data from impacted Choiseul coral reef systems show significant decreases in the availability of food fish and invertebrates, as well as a reduction in hard coral cover (Hamilton et al. 2007 ). ...
