ICLARM's research on coral reef resource systems.

ICLARM's current research programs on coral reef resource systems are focused on three main areas: 1) increasing sustainable yields and economic benefits from coral reef systems by the cultivation of desirable species or enhancing natural recruitment by the release of hatchery-reared juveniles; 2) improving ecosystem and resourcemanagement, through integrated coastal resources management, including the role of marine protected areas, the valuation of resource systems and alternative uses of resources (tourism and recreation), and the development of a global database on coral reef ecosystems; and 3) assessing and managing multispecies fishery resources. Proposedresearch activities of the Center are also presented in this paper.
