An in-depth look at Marine Ecosystem-Based Management around the world


Marine Ecosystem-Based Management seeks to manage marine resources in ways that protect ecosystem health while providing the ecosystem services needed by people.

This site presents case studies covering more than sixty places that are experiementing with an MEBM approach. By drawing lessons from real-world experience, we seek to enable managers, policymakers, scientists, stakeholders and students to learn how to improve the practice of marine resource management. more >>
