US$ 17.5 million a year is earned through diving – from a Maldivian perspective this amount is a considerable amount since about 20% of tourism earnings contribute to the nation’s GDP. Impacts on the economy Impacts on tourism Impacts on fisheries Impact on reefs and tourist dive sites Impacts on beaches Impacts on tourism infrastructure and support facilities Skipjack catches decreased Catch rates effected Estimated 45% of resorts at present suffer from varying degrees of coastal erosion.
