The Marine Integrated Decision Analysis System (MIDAS) is a software tool that was developed with three main objectives in mind: (1) to assist the Marine Managed Areas (MMAs) users and managers in understanding the critical factors that influence the MMA's effects so that they can plan accordingly; (2) to estimate likely MMA effects based on the ecological, socioeconomic and governance conditions; (3) and finally, to advise management plan revisions that will result in optimization of outcomes and outputs.
