Ecological effects of marine managed areas

Complete Title: 
Ecological effects of marine managed areas
Non IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

Scientists used a network of interdisciplinary studies to investigate the ecological effects of marine managed areas (MMAs) dispersed widely across the tropics. The results indicate that rigorously enforced MMAs can be an effective management tool to reduce overuse of natural resources and conflicts among different uses of the ocean. In addition, MMAs can provide important data for adaptive management of marine resources. This four-page policy brief draws from the "Living with the Sea" report.
