Resilience in Fathom Five

Resilience in a Protected Area:

Although there is an established body of ecological and social–ecological knowledge related to resilience concepts, in application it is still conceptually and methodologically early in its development. Within this paper, we explore the applicability of a resilience-based approach to planning and management by using Fathom Five National Marine Park as a study area.
