5. “Management of Marine Protected Areas: A Network Perspective” by Paul D Goriup

“Management of Marine Protected Areas: A Network Perspective” Book Review: This book illustrates the results of a major EU-sponsored research project related to the establishment of networks of MPAs in the Mediterranean and Black Seas. It explains the new research data and developments in marine conservation policy to demonstrate various issues related to ways in which networks of MPAs may amplify the effectiveness and conservation benefits of individual areas within them. The book covers topics including the broader socio-economic impacts of MPAs in the Mediterranean and Black Seas; the use of Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) to resolve issues between marine resource use and protection; special protection measures under the EU’s Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). It also explains the ecological value assessments in the Black Sea; the Ecosystem Approach (EA) for managing marine ecosystems; MPAs along Turkey’s Black Sea coast; MPAs and offshore wind farms; and managing and monitoring MPA networks within and between the Black and Mediterranean Seas.
