IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MARINE USERS
Transitional arrangements for renamed marine reserves:
From the declaration of Commonwealth marine reserves in November 2012 until new management plans come into effect in July 2014, there will be no changes to management arrangements for the renamed Commonwealth marine reserves that existed prior to the establishment of the new reserves. This includes Marine National Nature Reserves and Marine Parks, whether they continue to exist as discrete reserves or have been incorporated into larger new reserves.
- Transitional arrangements involve NO CHANGE ON THE WATER for marine users.
- If you hold an existing approval to undertake activities within the renamed Commonwealth marine reserves Ashmore Reef, or Cartier Island, you are able to continue to operate under the terms of your existing approval.
- No additional administrative requirements apply.
