Addtional Notes

 

 

"The present study shows that the inclusion socioeconomic spatial data of both extractive and non-extractive uses significantly reduced the potential economic impacts on the non-extractive sector without extra cost to the fisheries sector. Furthermore, results also indicate that the design of a multiple-zone MPA outperformed that of a single-zone MPA by reducing and generating more equitable impacts for both extractive and non-extractive interests."
