  • Description:
    "Socio-economic monitoring (SocMon) in Nevis began in May 2008 with a training workshop. SocMon Nevis was part of a regional project Socio-economic monitoring by Caribbean Fishery Authorities (Fisheries SocMon) funded by a US International Coral Reef Conservation grant and implemented by the Center for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) of the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, and the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM). The study area chosen for socio-economic monitoring, The Narrows, the area between St. Kitts and Nevis, and the site of a proposed marine protected area (MPA) encompassing th e Booby Island Shoal. The site was thought to be an important candidate for the study since the proposed MPA will be one of a number of MPAs in a larger Marine Management Area (MMA) expected to cover both St. Kitts and Nevis and implemented by the National Integrated Coastal Zone Management Programme of the Federation. Furthermore, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is currently working with the government and people of St. Kitts and Nevis on a pilot project to develop a national marine zoning design that can provide for and balance all marine uses. Although the Narrows is not considered a MPA , with the recent interest in managing coastal and marine resources, the development of a comprehensive socio-economic database based on the baseline data collected in this study is timely and may be used to inform conservation and guide decision-making"--Executive summary.
