Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve Management Plan: 2008 - 2013
In line with both Fisheries Department and NPAPSP recommendations, this Management Plan has been prepared with the input of the various stakeholders of the Atoll through meetings with the Advisory Committee, and interviews with a wide variety of individuals, including fishermen, tourism sector, management staff and researchers, and seeks to protect the resources of the reserve while allowing economic benefit through sustainable fishing and tourism. The management programs are based on the best available data and scientific knowledge, with the integration of conservation planning strategies, and fit within the scope of the current zoning scheme and regulations that govern the reserve.
The management plan, submitted to Fisheries Department, is designed to guide the management of the Marine Reserve through the next five years, providing a framework for both broad management activities as well as more specific research and monitoring activities. Detailed operational plans will be developed on an annual basis by the Fisheries Department, the Marine Reserve management agency, based on the framework provided by this management plan, and an annual review of implementation success will allow for adaptive management over the five year period.
