Abstract

Studies in the Greater Caribbean regarding international maritime shipping traffic show an increase to at least double that of today. This threatens the ecosystems in the area due to the expansion of the Panama Canal and the possible Nicaragua Canal; the Marine Protected Area (MPA) Seaflower, in the Colombian insular Caribbean, is being affected by this increase. The present critical bibliographic review seeks to describe and analyze the problems that the MPA is facing today as a result of maritime traffic, such as wake waves and underwater noise, with the purpose of proposing and recommending some management and governance measures, based on the approach of Ecosystems Based Management (EBM). The objective is to analyze how to deal with the problems related to maritime industry, based on the protection measures established by the World Maritime Organization (IMO) to safeguard navigation security and ensure the sustainability of ecosystems in the long term.
