Appeal by scientists over the review of ocean sanctuaries

Lenore Taylor writes in The Guardian (5.2.16) that ‘Australia’s leading marine scientists are appealing to the federal government to reject a review expected to recommend a significant reduction in the size of ocean sanctuaries and an expansion of areas permitted for commercial fishing.’

The Ocean Science Council of Australia, members of which include Hugh Possingham, the director of the Australian Research Council Centre for environmental decisions at the University of Queensland and Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, director of the Global Change Institute and professor of marine science at the University of Queensland, have published benchmarks against which the review should be assessed.
