Study on the Impact of Diving Sites

This study aims to define the appropriate capacity of diving sites in the area. It will then be possible to manage diving sites facing degradation in a correct and sustainable manner.

The project is divided into nine phases:

  • Review of authorized diving clubs’ operating models, with an analysis of models’ pros and cons;
  • Values and risk identification of the diving sites proposed by the clubs using specific analysis;
  • Introduction of a mandatory registration system of diving clubs’ activities (including total numbers and descriptions) for planned sites inside the Protected Marine Area;
  • Description, definition and documentation of sites and of underwater routes and paths;
  • Recognition, description and documentation of sensitive areas and potential impact causes inside the sites and underwater routes;
  • Compilation of a checklist and visual techniques to control and monitor the impact of activity on sensitive areas along underwater routes and paths;
  • Estimation of capacity for each underwater route and path;
  • Creation of alternative sites and paths;
  • Creation of strategies to improve underwater tourist service in relation to the Protected Marine Area’s mission of conservation, while also creating qualification measures for Dive Center operators.
