Abstract

Coastal fish fauna from a recently established Mediterranean MPA and from an adjacent nonprotected zone near its boundary were compared to evaluate the effects of protection. A remarkable “reserve effect” was detected for the whole assemblage in terms of both species richness and abundance. Moreover, a moderate spillover effect outside the MPA was observed for several target species.
