The Protocol on Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife in the Wider Caribbean (SPAW) Molinière - Beauséjour MPA (2014)

The Molinière Reef was identified as a priority for the establishment of a “protected seascape” as the site was considered to hold the finest reefs in Grenada. The site was given priority for the  
protection of representative samples of Grenada ecosystems, namely large areas of coral reef, littoral woodland, and cactus scrub, and medium to small area of seagrass bed. The MPA also includes some of the best reefs on Grenada that are home to a wide diversity of life forms.

The management objectives for the protectionof the areas are to protect and maintain the Molinière Bay ecosystem and its outstanding natural features and to provide opportunities for recreation, interpretation, research, environmental education and protection of over-exploited fish, lobster, and coral.
