Palau Country Report

Palau has a long-standing conservation and management ethic, as evidenced by a traditional management mechanism (e.g., bul) that has led to a growing marine protected area (MPA) network and some minimal) fisheries management interventions, such as seasonal closures. Looking forward, there is a need to secure the longevity, sovereign management, and effectiveness of relevant fisheries management and protected area efforts that has potential to be enhanced by the countries fast growing tourism industry.
