California Marine Protected Areas Past & Present

Deborah A. McArdle
Publication Date

The objective of this publication is to increase the availability of science-based information for the public policy debate, not to advocate for or against the formation of marine life reserves. This publication does not interpret the MLPA or provide an exhaustive analysis of the information available to the legislature at the time the bill was enacted. Additionally, the publication focuses primarily on ecological parameters. Decisions about the implementation of the marine reserves may also need to incorporate social and economic factors. Written for lay audience and suitable for use in high school courses.
