Firstly, by illustrating the economic and societal benefits of establishing MMAs, it provides policy-makers with powerful justification for government investment in MMAs. Secondly, through analysis of the various management options for MMAs, this study can assist MMA managers in the design of feasible management plans. Thirdly, benefit estimates for ecosystem goods and services provide crucial information for stakeholder consultations. Fourthly, the questions of how to make MMAs potentially self-financing, and how to pay for enforcement are addressed. Finally, the integration of ecological and economic research methods may provide the academic community with an example on which they can build.
