Case Studies
In order to provide context to the lessons learned from the implementation and management of MPAs in East Asia and Micronesia, we have provided 25 case studies from around the region, grouped into four categories: Habitats and Biodiversity, Socio-economic Objectives and Impacts, MPA Benefits to Fisheries and MPA Monitoring. These case studies represent current issues and problems in the science and management and the approaches used to address them. All of these case studies are taken from published journal articles or reports and the citation is provided. Click on "view details" to read the complete case study.

    To answer the question of whether the rates of biomass recovery of fished species can be inferred reliably from once-only spatial comparisons of no- take marine reserves of different ages and fished areas- a study was conducted at 15 no-take reserves and 14 adjacent control (fished) sites in the cen ...
