    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    Three objective criteria for assessing sites being considered as marine nature reserves are developed and applied to a region of the west coast of South Africa, between the Groen and the Spoeg rivers, that has been mooted as a possible...
  2. A holistic approach to the exploitation of intertidal stocks: limpets as a case study

    A holistic approach to the exploitation of intertidal stocks: limpets as a case study

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The potential ecological consequences of commercially exploiting the limpets Patella argenvillei and P. granatina on the west coast of South Africa were investigated. Standing stocks were quantified and population parameters (growth, mortality and recruitment) determined for both species. These data...
