Project Summary:
Phase II of the Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) Project included an Assessment of Fishing Closure Areas (as potential MPAs) against international criteria. Three areas were identified amounting to 15.31% of FI waters. Key baseline work is required for their effective design and management. Five steps have been identified for FIG approval; development of 1) economic consequences of the design (present and future), 2) Policy formulation, 3) Site Management Plans, 4) Suggested legislative framework and 5) Legacy Planning (resourcing, financial, human).
