  So will large MPAs do better? Most are in remote near-pristine areas with lots of marine life to save. The U.S.’s Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Hawaiian archipelago, for instance, is more than twice the size of Texas and supports 7, species, a quarter of them endemic.   The Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) of the world annually produce 95% of usable global marine biomass. LMEs are presently being subjected to stresses from unsustainable fishing, climate change, coastal eutrophication, toxic algal blooms and degradation of critical habitats, resulting in significant losses of socioeconomic benefits to coastal countries.
