    "The Moliniere/Beausejour Marine Protected Area (MBMPA) was designated in 2001. It is 60 ha (0.23 sq. miles), 1.4 miles (2.2km) long. Adjacent to the MPA are six communities that have a stake in the MPA. The MBMPA Stakeholder Committee was formed in 2009 to assist with decision-making and implementation of the Management Plan (Robie 2010) but has not been formalized yet as there is no provision for this Committee in the MPA legislation. This Committee has since been acting as an advisory committee to the Fisheries Division in the day-to-day operation of the MPA. The Moliniere/Beausejour Marine Protected Area Management Board has been established in February 2012. It acts as an advisory body to the National MPA Management Committee and the Fisheries Division, Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries with respect to the protection and management of the Moliniere / Beausejour MPA. This Board will serve as the primary consultative body for the MBMPA as it draws from stakeholder organizations including academic institutions, community interest groups and local community to facilitate the implementation of the Management Plan for the MBMPA. A protected area management plan provides the essential policy framework for the business and financial plans, by clarifying the management objectives of the protected area, the relevant users, financial needs and the resources available. This information feeds into the business plan for the protected area, which examines in more detail the customer base, goods and services, marketing strategy and implementation strategy for the protected area. This information in turn contributes to the financial plan for the protected area, which further details key assumptions and provides a break-even analysis (which identifies when the business is expected to turn in its first profit) and profit and loss projections"--Introduction.
