Abstract:

Marine conservation and biodiversity management in Australia includes two frequently competing goals: protecting threatened and endangered species, and providing for the sustainable use of resources. Protecting species one by one has been identified by government as inefficient and ultimately impractical, so alternative approaches are being considered. One of these is a ‘landscape’ (seascape!) approach to management. Marine reserves are one example of this approach.
