Dear Jessica, 

I know for certain that at the School of Ocean Sciences in Bangor (Wales, UK) there are people researching the use of MPAs in conjunction with the use of Biological Trait Analysis of benthic communities. Your best bet is to contact Dr. Gwladys Lambert, who is a visiting fellow in Bangor. Find her mail address at: http://www.bangor.ac.uk/oceansciences/staff/php/stafflist1.php?jobgroup=Research

Good luck !

We're proposing development of semi-private pocket-MPAs, along with active coastal ecosystem enhancements (coral/mangrove propagation/planting, fish&shellfish head-starting), as options to seagrass relocation in spots where there is plenty of seagrass. So far these have been in Jamaica, where the legal structures are favourable, but concept and language is largely transferable.

Can anyone provide examples where MPAs have been created as a mitigation requirement (looking globally)?
