on difference between large ands small reserve also named as SLOSS

Here in South Africa, COLIN ATTWOOD is one of the researchers on marine
reserves, sizes of reserves and their suitability / function.  He is
also a member of the Marine Reserves Task Group who brought out a
publication "Towards a new policy on Marine Protected Areas for South
Africa" in July 1997.

His direct application is to (mathematically) model reserves with
respect to linefish and (line) fishing sustainability (and has published
some of this) - he may well have some info useful to you..

He is working at MCM (Marine Conservation and Management - used to the
Department of Sea Fisheries) in Cape Town, and can be reached at
<cattwood at>.

Hope this helps.
