Apart from the natural causes, human activities lead to considerable amount of damage to the coral reefs and other marine and coastal resources. A combination of unsustainable fishing practices, over fishing and lack of law enforcement and awareness on the importance and ecology of marine and coastal resources is being a constant threat. Therefore, it is important to consider a fresh approach to conserve and manage the marine and coastal resources, which could ensure the sustainability.
