Abstract

Through a collaborative and systemic approach we designed a network of marine reserves aimed at protecting fish and invertebrate species associated with coastal rocky reefs, with particular attention to endangered and commercial species and habitats important for their development (e.g. seagrass meadows, mangrove forests, and Sargassum beds). The design of this network has incorporated variables on the possible effects of climate change on the ecological functions and ecological connectivity between the identified areas. Identifying the major areas that are socially accepted by the communities is also considered, which included taking into account local knowledge of fishermen, among other socioeconomic factors and governance.
