As concern over the health of the oceans grows, many nations, including the United States, are considering marine protected areas (MPAs) as ways to conserve their most vital marine habitats and resources. MPAs can be effective tools in balancing sustainable use with long-term conservation of the ocean, especially when they are planned, managed and evaluated using sound natural and social science.
