Northern Star: Economist: Keep NSW marine parks for at least 15 years

A FORMER World Bank economist has called on the Federal Government to keep marine parks on the New South Wales’ coast for at least 15 years before abandoning the protected areas.
In a report for the Centre for Policy Development, Fellow Caroline Hoisington wrote marine parks in NSW had not been in place long enough to determine the environmental benefits.
The parks, which have mostly been in place for between six and 11 years, aim to protect valuable marine areas from over-fishing, shipping and other impacts of human activity.
