Discover: The Barren Isles archipelago

Blue Ventures is working with the Government of Madagascar to help coastal communities create a locally-managed marine area (LMMA) around the Barren Isles, which will become the country’s largest marine protected area, as well as the Indian Ocean’s largest LMMA.

This ambitious conservation initiative aims to safeguard the marine biodiversity underpinning the archipelago’s traditional fisheries by mitigating overfishing, reducing conflicts between resource users, and promoting responsible fisheries management.

A new discover site has been released by Blue Ventures to illustrate the vital importance of this LMMA.
