Designing freshwater protected areas (FPAs) for indiscriminate fisheries

This paper reports the results of a model that tests the fisheries effects of no-take protected areas in conditions unique to indiscriminate riverine/floodplain systems. The model has a generalized form applicable to a wide range of systems. Here, the results of the general model, as well as those from a specialized form parameterized for the Tonle Sap lake, Cambodia are reported.
