Most socio-economic information collected in Anguilla, a small island in the Eastern Caribbean island chain, is centred around demographic and employment data. Very little information is available on natural resources use. As a country that relies heavily on the natural environment, without such socio-economic information, it becomes exceedingly difficult for natural resources managers to develop, implement, and enforce plans of action that regulate use and that work towards conservation. Indeed, this is reflected in the current management situation of Anguilla’s marine parks.
