    Marine Protected Areas compares conventional management of marine resources with proposals to augment these management strategies with a system of protected areas. The volume argues that implementation of MPAs should be incremental and adaptive, through the design of areas not only to conserve resources, but also to help us learn how to manage. This book describes tourism planning and management in national parks and protected areas. It also provides guidelines for best practice in tourism operations. Topics addressed include: ecological and cultural goals of national parks and protected areas; social roles of park-based tourism; tourism services and infrastructure; tourism in marine.

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) play important roles in biodiversity conservation, the sustainability of ecosystem services, ecosystem resilience in the face of global and ocean scale influences and as both a safeguard against management failure and uncertainty, and as control regions to benchmark human impacts in unprotected areas.

The Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) was passed in by the California Legislature, directing the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to redesign California’s existing system of marine protected areas (MPAs) to increase its coherence and effectiveness for protecting the state’s marine life, habitats, and ecosystems.

The term Marine Protected Areas include marine reserves, fully protected marine areas, no-take zones, marine sanctuaries, ocean sanctuaries, marine parks, locally managed marine areas, to name a few. Many of these have quite different levels of protection, and the range of activities allowed or prohibited within their boundaries varies.

There are four management areas.Marine protected areas (MPA) are protected areas of seas, oceans, estuaries or in the US, the Great Lakes.

These marine areas can come in many forms ranging from wildlife refuges to research facilities. MPAs restrict human activity for a conservation purpose, typically to protect natural or cultural resources. Such marine resources are protected by local, state, territorial.
