Author(s): Samuel D Brody

Selection criteria play an important role in the process of identifying, valuing, and designating marine protected area (MPAs). This report examines the role of site selection criteria in establishing a network of marine protected areas in the Gulf of Maine. The importance of criteria in providing a rational basis for site selection is first examined. Criteria are identified as guidelines that add consistency to the decision-making process and enable the clarification and achievement of program goals. The application of criteria for ranking candidate sites in order of preference is also briefly discussed and exemplified by the U.S. National Marine Sanctuary Program.

Although we describe the case study of the Channel Islands, the approach to marine reserve design may be effective in other regions where traditional management alone does not sustain marine resources.
