Overfishing has occasioned the collapse of many coastal and marine ecosystems globally. With these collapses come increased pollution and a degradation of water quality that can have adverse effects on human health. In addition, significant numbers of people rely on marine ecosystems for their livelihood, either from extractive uses, such as fishing, or from tourism. Diverse policy approaches have been used in order to combat marine degradation, including marine protected areas, ecotourism, catch shares, and community-based marine conservation. This bibliography reviews relevant literature regarding current threats to marine ecosystems, approaches to marine conservation policy, and fisheries management approaches aimed at sustainable fisheries development.
