Abstract

[Extract]

• In 2004 the amount of no-take zones ("Green Zones") in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park (GBRMP) increased from 5% to 33%.

• Despite pubic participation, parts of the recreational fishing sector opposed the rezoning.

• Recreational fishing accounts for most of the compliance offenses related to zoning in the GBR.

We aimed this study for 1)understanding recreational fishers compliance with Green Zones in the GBRMP and 2) assessing a reliable method for measuring compliance.
