Economic benefits of the California halibut fishery

Recreational anglers in the United States collectively spend millions of days and millions of dollars per year fishing in coastal and ocean waters. The state of California ranks second in the nation for recreational saltwater fishing, second only to Florida. The California halibut, Paralichthys californicus, is one of the most highly sought-after fish for recreational anglers due to its large size, delicious taste and challenging fishing behavior. Over 60,000 trips are taken per year by boat anglers targeting this species.

Piloting a new conservation finance curriculum in Germany

Protecting marine and coastal environments takes know-how, time and financial resources. So how do we fund marine conservation? There are many possible finance mechanisms, public and private, used to fund conservation efforts. Working with partners in Norway and Germany from the Blue Solutions program, CSF developed a set of training materials to teach environmental practitioners from governments and NGOs how to select and design finance mechanisms to support their conservation objectives.
