Evaluating the biological effectiveness of fully and partially protected marine areas

  title={Evaluating the biological effectiveness of fully and partially protected marine areas},
  author={Marija Sciberras and Stuart Rees Jenkins and Michel J. Kaiser and Stephen J. Hawkins and Andrew S Pullin},
Background: Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) encompass a range of protection levels, from fully protected no-take areas to restriction of only particular activities, gear types, user groups, target species or extraction periods. We synthesized the results of empirical studies that compared partially protected areas (PPA) to (i) no-take marine reserves (NTR) and (ii) to open access areas (Open), to assess the potential benefits of different levels of protection for fish and invertebrate populations… CONTINUE READING
