Abstract/Summary The method of compensating the fishing industry, and backward and forward linked land-based industries, as a result of increasing the area where fishing is banned in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Australia, from 4% to 30% in 2004. If expansion and creation of marine protected areas is to be successful compensation should be offered not just to fishers but to linked businesses.
