Proposed changes to South Australia's marine parks

17th June 2020
The State Government is currently consulting on proposed changes to South Australia’s marine parks.

The South Australian Government is committed to protecting our state’s marine environments while also supporting the communities that depend on this resource.

In 2018 the government commissioned BDO EconSearch to undertake an independent review to assess the economic, social and environmental values of the current marine park sanctuary zones.

Following consultation with the commercial fishing, recreational fishing and conservation sectors, the government is proposing to change the boundaries of two marine parks and amend six marine park management plans.

Pursuant to Section 14 of the Marine Parks Act 2007, the public must be notified of any proposal to amend a marine park management plan. See public notice.

Stakeholders and the community are invited to provide feedback on proposed changes. To have your say, visit YourSAy to join the online consultation. Visit - National Parks & Wildlife Service South Australia for further information.
