Overview

This document has been developed to provide information and guidance on the use of marine protected areas (MPAs) in the context of fisheries. The Guidelines are divided into two sections: the first discusses definitions and context, and provides background information on fisheries management, the ecosystem approach to fisheries (EAF) and MPAs as a tool for fisheries management, including socio-economic and biological impacts. The second section considers the planning and implementing of MPAs including the institutional, legal and policy context, the planning process and actual implementation considerations. The document also highlights the need for increased coordination across sectors and agencies/departments. As with all fisheries management, good governance--including adequate stakeholder participation--is key to successful and equitable management outcomes.
