Marine Parks

Marine Parks are areas of seas or oceans in which human activities (such as watercraft operation, fishing, and recreation) are managed. Marine parks may be established to protect natural or historical/archaeological resources, to minimise user conflicts, or for scientific/research purposes.

The CZMU has the responsibility of leading the process of designating a Marine Park (or "Restricted area" under the Coastal Zone Management Act) in collaboration with the National Conservation Commission (NCC). For further information please see:
