Among these MPAs, 257 have a national designation statute.

The MAPAMED data have been validated by all the Specially Protected Areas and Biological Diversity (SPA/BD) Focal Points of SPA/RAC, the centre that supports the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention in the implementation of the SPA/BD Protocol.
