Apparently our Marine Zones, and in particular those in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, are working.
“The combination of marine reserves and fishing controls appears to be working to protect the Great Barrier Reef as well as preserve stocks of commercially important species, say researchers.
The findings come out of a 30-year monitoring effort by scientists from the Australian Institute of Marine Science and James Cook University…”
I’d like to think that we are helping with the controls, and helping all Australian fisoh’s to identify these controls.

Nice to see fish stocks are increasing within these areas. We just need to look after them so we have fish to enjoy.
