Description Temporary closures, gear restrictions, size limits and quotas have a long history in marine fisheries management, but these are applied only to particular species and/or on a local basis as problems arise. Non-extractive marine reserves have been established in some places recently, but again only on a local basis or in response to specific problems. Regional planning is now being rapidly extended into the sea by territorial authorities. However there are, as yet, no policies to use this opportunity to unite the management of living resources in the sea with other aspects of planning and to provide for conservation in the marine environment. In the sea, there have been no attempts, so far, to apply standard conservation principles. On land, systems of unexploited reserves are regarded as having important intrinsic values, as well as providing general solutions to a wide range of potential problems. The questions discussed in this paper are: (i) Would a system of "no-take " marine reserves have intrinsic values, and if so, would these include the same range of benefits as unexploited reserves do on land? (ii) Do the clear differences in ecology between land and sea make a marine reserve
