Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Ecology and Society has published, Levels and drivers of fishers’ compliance with marine protected areas. The authors studied 12 MPAs in Costa Rica to test the effects of different variables (such as partially-closed fisheries, MPA size, etc.) on fishers' compliance with MPAs. You may access 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
