Abstract or Summary
  • This paper studies the consequences of creating a marine protected area (MPA) on a recreational non-extractive use of the ecosystem (scuba diving), and draws a parallel with the impact of MPAs on commercial fishing. The first part of the paper presents some preliminary results of a field survey of scuba divers frequenting three French MPAs, in the Mediterranean and in the Pacific Ocean. The aim of this survey was to characterize the behaviour of divers, and to provide information for an assessment of the economic value of MPAs. On the basis of these preliminary results, the second part of the paper proposes a simple illustrative model of demand for diving, taking into account both environmental and congestion effects of MPAs.
