He mentions management of coral reef fisheries at one point, writing that "The
best examples of MPA advocates and fisheries-management communities working
together are small-scale. In the Philippines and Indonesia, for instance,
communities are working with local governments and NGOs, using a mix of
protected areas and other forms of regulation, to try to rebuild coral-reef
fish stocks9
Here the principal aim is to make fishing more sustainable; the objective
of protecting representative habitats is not typically considered."
