ScienceDaily (Feb. 11, 2010) — Researchers from the Centre d'écologie fonctionnelle et évolutive (CNRS/Universités Montpellier 1, 2, 3/
Montpellier SupAgro/CIRAD/EPHE) and the University of the Cape in
South Africa (1) have shown that closing fishing zones in the ocean
has a beneficial effect on Cape penguins, an endangered species
endemic to Southern Africa, which feeds exclusively on fish. This
result comes from a unique experiment carried out by the researchers
on two penguin colonies, with the collaboration of government
authorities and the South African fishing industries.
