Abstract

This document presents a review of the available literature concerning management arrangements for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the UK, Europe, and around the world with the object of providing guidance for future management of MPAs, especially European Marine Sites (EMSs), in the UK. This is partly to support the development of effective legislation for UK MPAs through the Marine Bill process, but more broadly to assist UK marine nature conservation and resource management agencies to manage their sites more effectively and to meet the agreed OSPAR goals for a network of well managed marine protected areas to be in place over the next several years. The report follows on from the directions provided in the UK government’s “Maritime State of Nature Report” (Covey and Laffoley 2002) particularly: areas free of exploitation, new or revised legislation and ecologically meaningful management (ibid page 8).
