This self-assessment checklist has been developed to help you assess where your company stands in integrating responsible environmental practices. The initial 13 questions are relevant to all forms of marine recreation, while three additional sections offer supplemental questions for providers in specific sectors: interactive marine wildlife trips, recreational fishing, and snorkeling, diving and scuba.    Each question addresses a key issue and proposes a good practice. In addition to providing a useful tool to marine recreation providers, this checklist is being used by major tourism companies, including tour operators, cruise lines and hotels, to identify and select responsible service providers.
