What if we could save the fishing industry and protect the ocean at the same time? Marine ecologist Enric Sala shares his bold plan to safeguard the high seas — some of the last wild places on earth, which fall outside the jurisdiction of any single country — by creating a giant marine reserve that covers two-thirds of the world’s ocean. By protecting the high seas, Sala believes we will restore the ecological, economic and social benefits of the ocean. “When we can align economic needs with conservation, miracles can happen,” Sala says.

In this study we investigated critical aspects of ICOLL ecology and asked: how do these systems respond to increasing coastal pressures in general and in particular, those directly or indirectly related to tourism and recreation in their catchments? We were particularly interested in the influence of nutrient inputs (particularly from STPs) and entrance opening and closing regimes on the basic structure of the food web and in turn, the implications of these modifications for the sustainability and tourism appeal of ICOLLs.
