Augusta Margaret River Mail: Marine park promises 25 special surf, sanctuary zones

The State Government will also negotiate a compensation package with the commercial fishing industry, Mr Marmion said.
He said he believed the “figure” would be about $2m and the proposed sanctuary most likely to affect commercial fishers was at Cape Leeuwin, extending south and west from the cape.
Other major West Coast sanctuary zone proposals include about a 10 kilometre stretch of coastline from south of Redgate beach around Cape Freycinet, about seven kilometres of coast around Cape Clairault and north towards Canal Rocks, off Cape Naturaliste and a section of Southern Ocean coast near Ledge Point east of Augusta.
