Single MPA or MPA network
Main pressures on the environment
Fishing and Illegal, Unreported and Unregulated (IUU) Fishing

The lack of experience in MPA management needs to be addressed as these three MPAs are the first to be established in Montenegro. There is a lack of capacity, both in terms of equipment and trained staff, which can impair reaching the objectives of the MPAs. Public awareness and education should also be strenghtened.
