Abstract: "Management of coral reefs, and indeed any other natural resource, most often implies amelioration of minimization of man's impacts. Of the range of impacts associated with reef degradation, those most relevant to the insular Caribbean are: overfishing, use of destructive fishing methods, eutrophication by nutrients from sewage, waste water and fertilizers, sedimentation, and physical damage from recreational and commercial use, including damage by anchors and divers."
