Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

The journal, Desenvolvimento e Meio Ambiente, has published the English-language open access paper, Marine Spatial Planning in Asia and the Caribbean: Application and Implications for Fisheries and Marine Resource Management. The authors discuss the practical application of MSP in Asia and the Caribbean. You may download the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
