Roadmap to recovery: a global network of marine reserves

Publication - 21 March, 2006
In this report we present a design for a global network of high seas marine reserves. Marine reserves are highly protected areas that are off limits to all extractive and destructive uses, including fishing. They are the most powerful tool available for the conservation of ocean wildlife and may also benefit fisheries by promoting recovery and reproduction of exploited species.
