Marine Park (Parc Marin)
Information from FoProBiM Ecosystem Services Assessment:
The Arcadins area received a fairly high value based on overall size, however, much of what was included in the areal calculations included very large areas of sparse, patchy reefs providing limited coral reef based ecosystem services.
Total recommended area of this site is 78,600 ha.
Primary threats include: overfishing, fuel/charcoal production, coral harvesting, marine pollution, coastal development, climate change, and invasives.
Resources and endangered species in this area include: mangroves, coral reefs, seagrass, manatees, marine turtles, and corals.
