  1. Panel A displays the socio-economic characteristics of SEAFO countries grouped into developed and developing countries with unit of measurement in parentheses, while panel B shows the cross-country descriptive statistics of variables in their logarithm forms apart from MPA and convenience. MPA is the weighted average of the percentage of territorial waters protected for conservation attributes
  2. *, ** and ***level of significance at the 10%, 5% and 1% respectively
