This report, prepared for the University of Puerto Rico - Mayaguez, focuses on the process of implementing marine ecosystem-based management in Puerto Rico. We developed steps to implement marine reserves throughout Puerto Rico through the analysis of the Luis Pena Channel Natural Reserve in Culebra, a small island east of Puerto Rico, and the proposed Turrumote marine reserve in Lajas, a municipality in southwestern Puerto Rico. We also conducted an assessment of the different designations for marine protected areas and provided recommendations to simplify the current system.
