If you haven't discovered this yet, MPA is an acronym for Marine Protected Areas. This section brings to you summary works and information from around the world exploring what MPA's are, what they can do, why we need them, and how to create them. Overseas there are some huge advances being made in this area as the first functioning networks of marine protected areas emerge - there is much for us to consider and learn from these overseas examples.

This file has a .pdf extensionMarine protected area improves yield without disadvantaging fishers
Author(s): Kerwath etal 2013

Sven E. Kerwath1,2, Henning Winker2, Albrecht Go¨tz3 & Colin G. Attwood2

Potential fishery benefits of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are widely acknowledged, yet seldom demonstrated, as fishery data series that straddle MPA establishment are seldom available. Here we postulate, based on a 15-year time series of nation-wide, spatially referenced catch and effort data, that the establishment of the Goukamma MPA (18 km alongshore; 40 km2) benefited the adjacent fishery for roman (Chrysoblephus laticeps), a South
African endemic seabream. Roman-directed catch-per-unit-effort (CPUE) in the vicinity of the new MPA immediately increased, contradicting trends across this species’ distribution. The increase continued after 5 years, the time lag expected for larval export, effectively doubling the pre-MPA CPUE after 10 years. We find no indication that establishing the MPA caused a systematic drop in total catch or increased travel distances for the fleet. Our results provide
rare empirical evidence of rapidly increasing catch rates after MPA implementation without measurable disadvantages for fishers.

This file has a .pdf extensionProposal for Ross Sea MPA
Author(s): COMMISSION FOR THE CONSERVATION OF ANTARCTIC MARINE LIVING RESOURCES

The delegations of New Zealand and the United States propose the establishment by the Commission
for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources􀀃(Commission or CCAMLR) of a marine
protected area (MPA) in the Ross Sea Region (“Ross Sea Region Marine Protected Area”). In
recognition of the exceptional ecological value and scientific importance of the Ross Sea Region, our
delegations propose to establish this MPA to conserve living marine resources; maintain ecosystem
structure and function; protect vital ecosystem processes and areas of ecological significance; and
establish reference areas that will promote scientific research. This proposal is consistent with
Conservation Measure 91-04 (2011) and the scientific conclusions and processes, reviewed by the
Scientific Committee, from which the United States and New Zealand developed their original MPA
scenarios for the Ross Sea Region. This proposal was last submitted to CCAMLR as CCAMLRXXXI/
16 Rev. 1 on October 29, 2012, during the 31st Meeting of the Commission. Except where noted
in strikethrough/bold, the text of the proposed Conservation Measure is the same as that submitted on
October 29, 2012. The delegations of New Zealand and the United States appreciate the many
comments received from other Members on proposals for a Ross Sea Region MPA, including at
CCAMLR XXX, XXXI and intersessionally. We look forward to working together with Members in
Bremerhaven to achieve consensus to establish this MPA.

This file has a .pdf extensionPacific Oceanscape
Author(s): The Republic of Kiribati

A Secure Future for Pacific Island Nations Based on Ocean Conservation and Management
By The Republic of Kiribati
President Anote Tong

I. Purpose:
A summary briefing document for President Anote Tong (Kiribati) to use as a country initiative announcement at the Pacific Leaders Forum (4-7 August 2009, Cairns Australia).

II. Next steps:
Following review, amendment as needed and endorsement by Kiribati, officials need to notify the Pacific Island Forum Secretariat (PIFS) of this Kiribati country initiative at the PPAC meeting (14-15 July 2009) or soon thereafter.

III. Desired goal:
Kiribati announces the Pacific Oceanscape and component Pacific Ocean Arcs at the 2009 Pacific Leaders Forum with an invitation for collaboration in this initiative consistent with the Pacific Plan and the Forum Leaders Ocean Policy.  Kiribati, with the support from Conservation International, can further develop this concept for partnership and resourcing at the Regional Marine Managed Areas Meeting (November, 2009, French Polynesia).

IV. Rationale
Ocean conservation and management is the preeminent issue of our time and our region. Pacific Island people have depended on the ocean and its resources for millennia. But with rising sea levels, declining fishery resources, warming ocean temperatures, and pollution, the oceans are now changing rapidly in ways that our ancestors could not imagine, and in ways that degrade our people’s lives and threaten our existence. The time has come for our region to join together and face common threats to the ocean, a resource that moves between our communities and that we share like the atmosphere we breathe. The time has come for a new Pacific Ocean vision as demonstrated by the Pacific Oceanscape.
