[campam] Fw: MPA Benefits - In Numbers

Fri Mar 8 19:15:29 EST 2002

The report by Fiona Gell, Callum Roberts and Renata Goodridge entitled
fishery effects of the Soufriere Marine Management Area 1995/6 to
Environment Department, University of York, UK, should provide some
(including numbers). Basically, the study shows the stocks of some
economically important fin-fish species tripled in the Marine Reserves
doubled in the adjacent fishing areas since inception of the Marine
Management Area. You might want to request a copy of the report from Dr.
Roberts at the following email address: cr10 at york.ac.uk

I came across a well documented case study from the Phillipines. I will
check and try to give the exact reference
