Abstract

1. Marine protected areas (MPAs) are today's cornerstone of many marine conservation strategies. Our 2015 study (Devillers et al., 2015) and others have shown, however, that the placement of MPAs is ‘residual’ to commercial uses and biased towards areas of lower economic value or interest. 2. In this paper, we explored the impact of our study on marine science, policy and management practice. 3. We reviewed the papers citing our work and compiled expert opinions on some of the impacts of our study. 4. Results indicate a strong general uptake in the scientific community but more uneven impacts on policy and management in different contexts, with a likely smaller impact of the research on conservation practice.
