Abstract

Tourism and fisheries comprise the economic backbone of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador and the
Archipelago of San Andres, Colombia. The health of fishery resources, the environment and their
dependant industries is discussed against a background of policy development and user conflicts,
supported by a range of technical studies undertaken between 1998 and 2002, setting the scene for an
examination of a more participatory and effective role for local stakeholders in the management of
their island resources. Local stakeholders have been involved in guiding plans on future management
of both islands’ resources including Biosphere Reserve designation of the San Andres Archipelago
and the development of a Special Law for Galapagos. Their participation is deemed essential to
progress in marine resource management and zoning initiatives within the islands.
