Dr Emily Ogier is a Fisheries Social Science Research Fellow at the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies.  She is interested in the human dimension of marine systems, and the way this interaction is governed through both formal institutions and social processes. She manages the Social Sciences and Economics Research Coordination Program, which is a national program funded by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation.

Biography

Before joining the University of Tasmania, Emily was Project Officer for the Tasmanian Seafood Industry Council. Prior to that she undertook her doctoral studies at The University Western Australia where she examined multi actor governance of sub-jurisdictional archipelagos, using the Houtman Abrolhos Islands in Western Australia as her primary case study. Since joining the University of Tasmania her positions have included policy research fellow with the Marine Adaptation Network and Executive Officer of the Fisheries Economics Capability Building project with the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics.

Expertise

Australia's marine and coastal estate entails a complex and often contentious mix of uses, management organisations and structures, interests and ecological characteristics. Emily's research focuses on:

  • Governance systems for common-pool resources
  • Fisheries and aquaculture
  • Adaptation to global environmental change
  • Science policy
  • Sustainability assessment and perception
  • Ecosystem services
  • Public values
  • Science knowledge production, extension and brokerage

Her research skills and expertise include:

  • Interdisciplinary research
  • Public values mapping and assessment
  • Content and text analysis
  • Policy analysis
  • Social science research methods (surveys, interviews, focus groups)
  • Incorporating social sub-systems into decision tools for social ecological systems

Research Themes

Dr Ogier's research aligns to the University's research themes of Marine, Antarctic and Maritime; Environment, Resources and Sustainability; and Data, Knowledge and Decisions. Her overarching  research interest is in bridging qualitative social science with decision science and decision support frameworks for marine governance.

Emily's research has included identify public and private values for marine systems affected by and affecting aquaculture in South-east Tasmania (Your Marine Values study undertaken as stage 1 of the INFORMD2 project FRDC 2012-024). Identified values, their relationship to ecosystem services, and the interactions between them, have been used to develop the qualitative model which will inform the design of the risk-based decision-support tool. Emily's findings have also been used to link environmental assessment and monitoring frameworks to public and private marine values.  Through her involvement in the Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS), she is pursuing further research to determine the ecosystem service values of these shared values using both standard ecosystem services evaluation methods and non-monetary deliberative evaluation methods.

Emily is also investigating the extent to which sustainability expectations are met in Australia's fisheries management. This research includes analysis of how surrogate public values articulated in fisheries management objectives are operationalised and used to inform trade off analysis in fisheries management systems. She is also examining the extent to which these surrogate public values align with public values expressed in social movements.

Through her role as manager of the FRDC's Social Sciences and Research Coordination Program, Emily's research activity includes identifying knowledge gaps and developing resources to address challenges regarding the social impacts, acceptability and sustainability of fisheries and aquaculture. A further focus of Emily's research in this role is facilitate better integration of social sciences (including economics) and between social and biological sciences in contributing to knowledge gaps.Emily's research has also included developing frameworks, models and tools for developing and evaluating adaptation pathways for managed fisheries, through her involvement in the South-East Australian Fisheries Climate Change Program. Further research has included investigating the interaction between science knowledge and social acceptability of the salmon aquaculture industry in South-eastern Tasmania, through the UTAS-CSIRO Coastal Cluster Collaboration.

Collaboration

Dr Ogier is a member of the Centre for Marine Socioecology (CMS), which is a joint collaboration between the University of Tasmania, CSIRO and the Australian Antarctic Division and brings together disciplinary expertise in physics, law, economics, biology, sociology, and governance. The focus of CMS research activity is on the complex issues that are developing in the management of the marine estate.Previously she has undertaken research under the banner of a number of collaborations, including the UTAS-CSIRO Coastal Cluster Collaboration: Knowledge Theme and the Marine Adaptation Network for the National Climate Change Adaptation Research Facility.

Aquaculture-Community Futures: North West Tasmania (2019 - 2021)$172,996
Description
In order to secure the future of Australian aquaculture, it is increasingly clear that, alongside effective and responsible production, building and maintaining community support is vital. The Tasmanian salmon industry is acutely aware of the need to garner and maintain societal support. A number of factors contribute towards the achievement of community acceptability (or social license to operate). These include: the perception that a company offers benefits; that it contributes to the well-being of the region, respects the local way of life and acts fairly; that it listens, responds and exhibits reciprocity; and that relations are based on an enduring regard for each others interests. Many of these factors are based on understanding, and contributing towards the achievement of, that which is valued by local and regional communities. This project aims to understand the regional development and well-being futures envisaged by residents of NW Tasmania and how salmonid farming can contribute to meeting these shared values.

Evaluation of the subsidy for the Centrostephanus fishery (2019)$40,000
Description
The commercial fishery for Centrostephanus rodgersii sea urchins in Tasmania has been subsidised through the Tasmanian Abalone Council for around 2.5 seasons at a cost of $0.75/kg in an effort to control increasing population numbers. Recent significant increases in total commercial catch have necessitated an evaluation of expenditure on the urchin harvest subsidy. This project will evaluate the existing spatial and economic effectiveness of the subsidy and investigate various possible future structures for the subsidy, including spatial and seasonal price structuring and the effect of possible removal or gradual reductions in the subsidy. Areas where knowledge is lacking and targeted data collection will be identified to provide guidance for future subsidy decisions.Our aims are the following: - Evaluate the existing subsidy structure and its effectiveness at achieving its original goals - Gather information from divers and processors (through survey) to identify key challenges in harvesting process, and what incentives or changes could lead to improved harvesting efficiency - Test possible alternative structures for subsidy, including reduction or cessation - Identify key areas of data collection (including method) needed to best assess the subsidy program over the next 1-3 years and to allow the formulation of an optimal urchin harvest strategy

Rebuilding Southern Rock Lobster stocks on the east coast of Tasmania: informing options for management (2018 - 2019)$103,800
Description
This project seeks to describe (and model) the relationships between fisher behaviour, stock status and management intervention in the east coast rock lobster fishery. This will be used to develop a management framework to support the rebuilding of the east coast rock lobster stocks, recognizing that traditional management approaches are expected to become less effective at controlling the catch as the east coast stocks recover.

Towards consistent standards for Australian fisheries management (2015 - 2016)$410,115
Description
This proposal was developed at the request of the Australian Fisheries Management Authority, in a call for an expression of interest on the topic. The idea of a standard for fishery management has been under discussion in AFMA for some time and is consistent with broader directions in government and expectations in the community. In developing the EOI, further consultation was held with several state jurisdictions, with interest shown by both South Australia and Tasmania in pursuing such an approach. General indications of support were obtained from the federal Department of the Environment and the Department of Agriculture. The project was discussed at the Australian Fisheries Managers Forum in November 2014 and broadly supported. Discussions with other interested parties included with the Commonwealth Fisheries Association and the Seafood CRC. This project follows on logically from a current Seafood CRC project investigating responsible fisheries management certification due for completion prior to the commencement of this project.
