Science and Management, tensions and opportunities for the management of Marine Protected Areas
What reasons underlie the tension between academia and management in relation to the management of Marine Protected Areas? How could collaboration between the area management authorities and the scientific sector be strengthened, to increase the transfer of knowledge applicable to management? These and other questions guided the round table promoted by the Forum for the Conservation of the Patagonian Sea during the XVIII Latin American Congress of Marine Sciences.
With the participation of more than one hundred people, representatives of the National Park Administration of Argentina and the Mar de Juan Fernández National Park and Desventuradas Islands of Chile, together with the Forum, presented their experiences and demonstrated the challenges and results of the joint work.
