This ecosystem profile elaborated in a participatory approach with local and regional stakeholders offers a wide overview of the European Overseas territories in the Caribbean under the European BEST Initiative. This regional ecosystem profile contains an analysis on the biological importance of the Caribbean region, a complete review on the current situation of the region’s biodiversity, habitats and their threats based on the most recent scientific data and observation and presents them in the socio-economic and political context. To achieve these objective knowledge hubs were established in the 7 EU Overseas regions to identify key biodiversity areas (KBAs). Each ecosystem profile also includes an analysis of current conservation activities and relevant investments in the region.

Las lagunas costeras son depresiones en la zona costera que tienen una conexión permanente o efímera con el mar, pero del cual están protegidas por algún tipo de barrera. Su conformación estructural resulta de la interrelación de varios ecosistemas como el manglar, el rio, el mar, los manantiales y la vegetación acuática sumergida, entre otros. (Herrera y Morales, 2010). Las lagunas costeras reportadas para las costas dominicanas son unas 141, según Diccionario Enciclopédico Dominicano de Medio Ambiente (FUNGLODE, 2011), siendo el sistema lagunar que abarca Montecristi-Manzanillo uno de los que representan mayor importancia. Se reportan para la provincia de Montecristi 44 lagunas costeras (González, 1999). El presente documento contiene una evaluación s técnicas del Viceministerio de los Recursos Costeros y Marinos, Denia Veloz y Leonarda Abreu, del 2 al 5 de febrero de 2012 en el marco del proyecto CLME con fines de actualizar la información para elaborar un plan de manejo en la zona.

This circular summarizes the methods and results of a survey designed to estimate angler expenditures and willingness-to-pay (WTP) for billfish recreational fishing in the Caribbean. The survey conducted in 2017 found that the value of billfish recreational fishing and expenditures by recreational fishers are very high in the region. The results demonstrate that there is the potential to raise conservation funds from this resource user group. This study estimated that one more billfish caught in the Caribbean, regardless of the disposition of that catch, was worth USD 761, with USD 1 494 for an additional trophy fish caught.

Experiences of the Belize Spawning Aggregation Working Group. Proceedings of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute. 59:455-462. Gibson, J., R.F. Pott, G. Paz, I. Majil and N. Requena. 2007.
This paper chronicles the history of the Belize Spawning Aggregation Working Group from its inception following a national
survey of many of Belize’s Nassau grouper spawning sites conducted during the 2000 – 2001 aggregation period. It
documents how the Group evolved and developed its objectives, and highlights its main achievements, one of which was the
passage of legislation that provided full protection to 11 spawning sites and introduced a closed season for the Nassau
grouper. The Group was formed in response to the drastic decline in numbers of spawning Nassau groupers, which was
dramatically brought to the attention of many concerned organizations at a historic workshop held in July 2001 in Belize
City. The Group assumed the responsibility of taking action to stem the decline. Its success has depended to a large extent
on its diverse membership, which is drawn from government agencies, NGOs and the private sector. The invaluable
contribution made by many fishers, who unselfishly shared their traditional knowledge of spawning banks with researchers
and managers, was also a major factor in the Group’s success and the protection of many spawning sites. Members are
interested in sharing their experience with other similar groups that are being developed within the Mesoamerican reef

Massive quantities of pelagic sargassum occurred throughout the Caribbean in 2011, impacting aquatic resources, fisheries, shorelines, waterways, and tourism. Similar events have occurred since then, with a particularly heavy influx of sargassum observed during 2015. This Fact Sheet seeks to share the state of knowledge about the sargassum influx and to promote the adoption of best management practices.

FROM VISION TO STRATEGIC ACTION
PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES
The CLME+ Hub is an initiative of the Secretariat of the CLME+ Interim Coordination Mechanism (ICM), in collaboration with the members of the CLME+ ICM and CLME+ Project Executive Group (PEG) and (prospective) Partner Organizations. Development of the Hub has benefited from the financial support of the UNDP/GEF Project: “Catalysing Implementation of the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Sustainable Management of shared Living Marine Resources in the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems” (CLME+ Project, 2015-2020). The CLME+ Project is executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in close collaboration with a large number of global, regional and national-level partners.
