Abstract:
The project, via surveys and interviews, determined the community and visitor group expectations of and support for marine protected area (MPA) management in the offshore coral reefs and associated ecosystems off the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. Vieques, due to its wealth of coral reef resources and recent political history, presents a unique location in which to evaluate attributes that different stakeholder and community groups consider important in MPAs, to identify points of convergence within different stakeholder groups, isolate locations which the community would consider suitable for active management, evaluate the preferred methods of public participation within and between community groups, and to determine community expectations of MPA benefits and costs"--Executive summary.
