  • Description:
    "The goal of the assessment was to collect and document baseline socio-economic data of the Shoal Bay-Island Harbour Marine Park. Objectives of the study were five-fold: 1. To determine the level of public awareness (Anguillians and visitors) regarding the marine park; 2. To determine and document the various uses of the marine park; 3. To quantify the level of activity (including, but not limited to, fishing, diving, snorkelling, swimming, and boating) within the marine park boundaries; 4. To gauge the level of community support for a functioning marine park; and 5. To assess the level of management capacity of marine park stakeholders. From these main objectives, three additional and equally pertinent sub-objectives emerged, namely: 1. To determine stakeholder perspectives on the development of a zonation plan for the marine park; 2. To determine the level of support for a complete ban on spearfishing within marine park boundaries; and 3. To determine the level of support for the introduction of user fees for activities conducted within the marine park"--P. 12.
