The book of Marine Protected Areas 

This short movie wants to tell a true story of depletion of the Mediterranean Sea following the increase of human population and fish demand. From healthy environments at the beginning of the century, fish stocks overexploitation led to ecosystem shifts in many coastal areas, where important macroalgal habitats were overgrazed by sea urchins, and replaced by marine deserts.


A succession of drawings and videos show how well-managed marine protected areas, where the collaboration among managers, stakeholders and scientists is achieved, represent one of the best solutions to prevent and, sometimes reverse, this negative trend and restore our sea.
