 1. To evaluate and select the best subset of indicators of MPA performance, under each management regime, considering ecological, fisheries and socio-economic indicators.

 2. To define assessment and monitoring protocols to be applied in EU MPAs, and to define evaluation methods for the proposed protocols.

 3. To provide a quantitative analysis of the socio-economic performance of MPAs in the EU context, using bio-economic modelling tools.
