Design of a Visitor Impact Management System for SCUBA diving areas in San Andres Island

Francisco Gallo Mejía, Alejandro Martínez Carvajal i Jorge Iván Ríos Patiño, 2002

Visitor Impact Management (V.I.M) is a management methodology designed to control the expected impact due to visitors in a given environment, which integrates the clean Production concept to tourism industry through sustainable use goals.

The Current coral deterioration has been attributed to diverse factors, including boat anchorage and scuba diving practices. Nevertheless, true effects of scuba diving, even must be characterized to design successful management strategies not negative compromising the economic  development neither coralline ecosystem health.

This is particularly important in San Andres Island recently declared as Biosphere Reserve “Sea Flower” by UNESCO. San Andres is a paradise for the scuba divers due to the clarity, warm temperature of its waters, its coral formations, as well as the derived publicity of being a marine protected area.
