Abstract

Although the title of this symposium implied a focus on fully protected marine areas, most presentations actually dealt with a range of traditional "marine protected areas" or "marine managed areas" that offer less than "full" resource protection. Some presentations noted a backlash against establishing no-take reserves. Here we provide 17 reasons why there is a strong scientific, management, and public interest in using no-take marine reserves to build sustainable fisheries and protect marine ecosystems. We also discuss some underlying technical and philosophical issues involved in the opposition to their usage.
