MPA Benefits - In Numbers

Dear Coral - List Members,
Though MPAs have a great many benefits with regards to observations ,
statements in a stack of MPA pubs, etc. - where may I quickly find direct
research and studies references that "do the numbers?" The politicians and
Gov. economic advisers simply say to us 'Yeah, well good & fine - talk is
talk - but show us the figures - where you can prove to us that fisheries
stocks are indeed enhanced by MPAs?"
I need case examples with those numbers and not just words, observations,
and perhaps institutional / academic 'whitewashing'. An example of numbers
would be a historical record of past catch landings vs those after the MPA
establishment - with direct, verifiable correlation to the MPA of course.
Anyone comment on Apo?
Any assistance would be well appreciated here.
