The worldwide decline of coral reefs necessitates targeting management solutions that can sustain not only reefs but also the livelihoods of the millions of people who depend on them. Yet little is known about the context in which different reef management tools can help to achieve multiple social and ecological goals. Due to non-linearities in the likelihood of achieving combined fisheries, ecological function, and biodiversity goals along a gradient of human pressure, relatively small changes in the context where management is implemented could have dramatic implications on whether these goals are likely to be met or not. Critically, marine reserves and fisheries restrictions could provide substantial conservation benefits to the majority of reefs for fisheries and ecological function, but not biodiversity goals.
