Title: Economic Implications of Fully-Protected Marine Reserves for Coral Reef Fisheries
Authors: Rodwell, L.D.
Roberts, C.M.
ASFA Terms: Coral reefs
Marine reserves
Issue Date: 2000
Abstract: Overexploitation of coral reefs causes species loss, stock collapses and habitat degradation and remains a major challenge for fisheries scientists and managers alike. To counter these, fully-protected marine reserves, areas closed to fishing and other harmful human activities represent an essential component of coral reef fisheries management. They overcome many of the management complexities of coral reefs, such as lack of data and enforcement, and provide vital opportunities for unhindered growth of fish stocks and protection of coral communities. Their role in conserving biodiversity and protecting habitat is undisputed.
