Presented during the 2018 MedPAN experience sharing-workshop.

Implementation of seasonal no-take zones as part of fisheries management scheme in MPAs is largely unknown despite of their role as a flexible trade-off between human needs and conservation objectives. To this end, the effects of protection level and habitat type on community parameters, trophic structure and functional diversity of fish populations were assessed at sites of different protection level with respect to fisheries (from seasonal no take-zone to areas completely open to fisheries) inside and outside the MPA of the National Marine Park of Zakynthos.
