Financial values of five important marine/coastal wildlife areas in England (ENRR182)

The overall aim of this 1996 study was to obtain an overview of the financial value of five coastal sites recognised as being important for marine wildlife. The five sites were selected because of their importance, their diverse nature and their geographical spread. The sites were: – Lundy, Holy Island and the Farnes, Morecambe Bay, North Norfolk Coast, Isles of Scilly. The main objectives of the study were: to provide information on financial and economic factors as an important component of establishing an understanding of the total value of the sites in order to ensure a realistic approach to management; to identify the key sectors and organisations with a vested (financial) interest in the sites and their future sustainable management; to determine broad-brush financial values accruing from the coastal environment, thereby highlighting its importance to users and regulators.
