Example text

Coastal MPAs tend to fall under national jurisdiction, and may therefore be an extension of terrestrial park legislation (as in the UK) or fisheries legislation (as in the USA), or may be the responsibility of an entirely new governing area (as in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Authority in Australia) (Boersma and Parrish, 1999). The reasons for establishing MPAs are varied and rarely is there a single motivating factor. Boersma and Parrish (1999) have reviewed the reasons for the establishment of MPAs and find that almost all aimed for some form of protection of local marine resources, and in addition, cited either conservation of biodiversity, maintenance of fisheries or promotion/control of tourism as additional reasons for designation.

It is complex because the co-evolution of humans decisions and physical and biological systems are in some senses inherently unknowable. The complexity stems from the same factors that make coastal zones such important resources. Coastal zones provide a range of different goods and services to many diverse users. They are often transboundary resources spanning neighbouring nations or regions: it is difficult to restrict access to them. There are many different natural environments at the land–water interface, and each environment has the capacity to affect the others.

Coastal resource characteristics thus provide particular challenges. 1 shows that the property rights regimes for coastal resources depend on the subtractible nature of the resource, the ease of exclusion of users and whether the resources are stationary or fugitive. ‘Subtractible’ means that one person’s consumption reduces the availability of the resource for consumption by others. Thus, the activities of one bird-watcher generally do not reduce the number of birds available for other watchers.
