Coral Sea Commonwealth Marine Reserve: social and economic assessment of the impacts on commercial and charter fishing
ABARES social and economic assessment
Report on the draft marine reserve, with a supplementary report for the final proposed marine reserve
Research by the Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences, June 2012
The Australian Bureau of Agricultural and Resource Economics and Sciences (ABARES) has carried out a socio-economic assessment of each of the final regional marine reserves network proposals. The assessments looked at both the direct and indirect impacts of the proposed networks on the fishing industry - including possible impacts on the communities that rely on these industries for jobs and economic activity.
