Keywords: Marine national park | Ytre Hvaler nasjonalpark | Nature Management Act

This article analyses if the management of Norway’s first marine national park, Ytre Hvaler nasjonalpark, is in compliance with the Nature Management Act of 19 June 2009 no. 100 and fulfils theregulation that creates the protected area. Furthermore, the article examines if there is compliance between law, regulation and practice, especially in situations where the decisions of the authority may directly affect the unique nature of the national park. These aspects are of great interest, especially since the challenges and conflicts one may meet for marine protected areas may be quite different from the ones met for terrestrial habitats and protected areas. First, the goals for the management of the national park are discussed. Secondly, the article discusses what measures the managing authority will have to implement in order to reach thesegoals, and finally, cases from the local managing authority are discussed in order to highlight how the management is followed through in practice. An important question that arises is if the long term effects of the management practice will reach its initial purpose to protect the area, or if the management in fact is working against its purpose.
