Marine Parks can provide some sort of protection; however, it all depends on the types of Ocean uses that are allowed to take place such as fishing or deep-sea mining. More protections may be necessary once research in the marine park takes place.
An example of this scenario occurred in a recent study at a Marine Park in Australian Water where the banks and pinnacles that typified the undersea habitats made way for a higher than expected number of species. The high biodiversity increased the call for better protection from commercial and recreational fishing that is allowed in the Marine Park.
Did you think we should be putting more restrictions on the Marine Park now that we know it has a high biodiversity? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
