Tobago Cays Marine Park for caribbean LME

The Tobago Cays Marine Park (TCMP) is located in the Grenadines island chain at the southern end of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). The Park’s islands, reefs and shallows cover almost 15 nautical square miles, mostly within the 10 fathom depth contour, including five uninhabited cays. The Cays are of great ecological, economic, social and cultural importance to SVG. In 1997 the Cays were acquired by the SVG government and declared a marine park; currently it is under the management of a multi-stakeholder board selected by Cabinet.
