Russ, G.R. and Alcala, A.C. (1994) Sumilon Island reserve: 20 years of hopes and frustrations. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 17(3), pp. 8-12.
Over 20 years, successive openings and closures of the Sumilon Island marine reserve to fishers have provided unique opportunities to examine the effects of marine reserves on populations and communities of fishes and upon local fisheries. The history of the reserve also highlights the problems and frustrations of educating and convincing people of the need for rational management of renewable marine resources. Yet, it is a symbol of hope in that it has provided a unique example of the potential benefits of marine reserves in fisheries management, particularly in the developing world.
