Marine Planning

Policy brief: Healthy fisheries through marine reserves

WHAT KIND OF TOOL IS IT?

The tool is a set of policy guidelines.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

The guidelines help policy makers and planners deliver a more reliable food supply to fishing communities in Indonesia and the Philippines by achieving strict no-take MPA targets expected to rebuild and maintain healthy fisheries.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The policy brief is used as part of the Rebuilding reef fisheries with Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) toolbox. It is used to set targets for large-scale Marine Spatial Planning as well as small-scale MPA design.

WHEN IS IT USED?

It is used to design and implement MPAs specifically when there is little information about the status of fish populations and fisheries.

IN WHAT FORMAT IS IT AVAILABLE?

The guidelines are presented in a PDF file.

WHO IS THE TARGET END-USER?

  • Policy makers
  • Government and NGO planners undertaking MSP
  • Researchers studying marine reserve design
