Abstract:
Four volumes identifying priorities for establishing new marine protected areas and improving management of existing ones in each of the world's 18 major marine regions: Antarctica, Arctic, Mediterranean, Northwest Atlantic, Baltic, Caribbean, West Africa and South Atlantic, Central Indian Ocean, Arabian Seas, East Africa, and East Asian Seas, South Pacific, Northeast Pacific, Northwest Pacific, Southeast Pacific and Australia/New Zealand. Recommends priority areas and actions for creation of globally representative system of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The purpose of the system is to recommend priority areas and actions for creation of globally representative system of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The primary goal of the NRSMPA is to establish and manage a comprehensive, adequate and representative system of marine protected areas to contribute to the long-term ecological viability of marine and estuarine systems, to maintain ecological processes and systems, and to protect Australia's biological diversity at all levels.
