Abb. Term Definition
MPA Marine Protected Area Discrete geographic areas of the sea that are protected by spatially explicit restrictions designated under international, national, tribal or local laws to enhance long-term conservation of natural resources therein.
NTR No-take reserve MPAs where all anthropogenic activities are excluded, apart from scientific research.
PPA Partially protected area MPAs whereby regulations restrict some extractive uses but permit others.
Open Open access area Areas outside the MPA that are open to fishing.
TP Target-protected species Target species that were protected in both the NTR and the PPA
TNP Target non-protected species Target species that were protected in the NTR but still allowed to be fished inside the PPA
NT Non-target species Species for which fishing gear is not specifically set, although the possibility that these species are accidentally caught as by-catch cannot be ruled out
IdC Indiscriminate, commercial PPA PPAs that prohibit fishing activities which are damaging to bottom habitats and non-target species (e.g. scallop dredging, bottom trawling) but allow other forms of commercial fishing with mid-water towed gear or static bottom gear
DC Discriminate, commercial PPA PPAs that prohibit activities which affect particular target species but not the surrounding environment (e.g. seine nets, long lines, spearfishing) but allow subsistence fishing on a commercial basis
DR Discriminate, recreational PPA PPAs that prohibit activities which affect particular target species but not the surrounding environment (e.g. seine nets, long lines, spearfishing) but allow fishing on a recreational basis
