The emphasis will be on the practical, interdisciplinary, and ecosystem-based approaches, to managing recreational fisheries and marine protected areas (MPAs). Addressing larval connectivity, fisheries management, conservation, whilst fostering improved marine resource management throughout the Wider Caribbean Region.
