Public Approval of Marine Protected Areas

"The Conservation Law Foundation, The Ocean Conservancy, Environmental Defense, World Wildlife Fund Canada and the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society together sponsored a poll that interviewed 750 residents of New England and Atlantic Canada. Among the poll's findings: - The public is very supportive of establishing fully protected "no-take" ocean areas that prohibit all extractive activities, including commercial and recreational fishing. (New England 74%, Atlantic Canada 73%)." [Excerpt from SeaWeb Ocean Update, April/May 2002]
