Article Summary from page 29

In a remote corner of Madagascar, an unusual experiment has been taking place. In 2004, after a 90-per-cent drop in octopus catch sizes, community leaders, supported by several NGOs, introduced a voluntary six-month closure of the fishery that was sustaining them. The following year, Lee Middleton attended the historic reopening of the world's first community-run, protected zone for octopus.
