Abstract or Summary
  • A marine protected area (MPA) is a management tool used for biodiversity conservation and sustainable fisheries development, but it is less used for non-extractive uses of ecosystems such as eco-tourism. We estimate the willingness-to-pay for improved environmental qualities of the Nha Trang Bay MPA on one hand and employment effects on the other among a convenience sample of Vietnamese national tourists. Using a mixed logit model with correlations, we find that tourists are willing to pay for environmental quality improvements, but are ambiguous towards reducing the number of fishermen operating within the bounds of the MPA. This is important information for managers and policy makers in order to maintain tourism benefits and conserve marine biodiversity, but also with respect to how to secure income opportunities for the local fishermen.
