Description

This report outlines human dimensions information relevant to coral reef resources in Guam. The findings here are derived from a combination of data gathered through household surveys conducted from February to July of 2016, and additional secondary sources of socioeconomic information for the region. Survey results show that Guam residents participate in swimming and beach recreation most frequently. Additionally, 30% of residents indicated that they participate in fishing or gathering of marine resources. Perceptions concerning marine resource condition tend to vary among Guam residents, they generally support a range of potential marine management policies and regulations, and are moderately familiar with the various threats facing coral reefs.
