Potential impacts of MPA

Senior research fellow Jane Turpie presented a talk on the potential impacts of MPA expansion on commercial fisheries at the annual meeting of the Marine Protected Area Forum, a meeting of over 70 managers and researchers involved in MPAs in southern Africa.

The
forum also debated the human dimensions of MPAs in general, and how these
should be taken into account in MPA planning, which has hitherto been very much
focused on resources alone.
