The Adiatic Sea, its coastline and islands, whose values have been recognized on a global scale, schould be holders of economic development of Croatia, particulary of its coastal and insular part. General orientation during the process of improvement of marina capacities should implement the protection of nature and orginality of the Mediterranean cultural heritage. Protection of particular areas is still the basic method of preserving bilogical and landscape diversity. Protected areas make up the framework of overall protection and key nodes in the ecological network, representing refuges and depositories of biological diversity.
