Accurate, rapid, and cost-effective fish assemblage monitoring is fundamental to marine protected areas (MPA) management as a pivotal tool to verify whether and t what extent MPA conservation objectives have been achieved and to redefine these objectives in the framework

Ecosystem approach to fisheries management works – How switching from mobile to static fishing gear improves populations of fished and non-fished species inside a marine protected area

Lyme Bay marine protected area (MPA) is the UK’s first and largest example of an ambitious, whole-site approach to management, to recover and protect reef biodiversity. The whole-site approach applies consistent management, in this case excluding bottom towed fishing, across
