Abstract: The Great Barrier Reef is a marine ecosystem that is recognised worldwide for its unique biological and physical features. It is by far the largest single collection of coral reefs in the world and biologically supports one of the most diverse ecosystems known. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park includes most of the Great Barrier Reef region and the Reef was added to the World Heritage List in 1981. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is a multiple-use protected area with zoning plans and permits for different activities being the main tools for Reef management. The Great Barrier Reef region supports direct economic activity estimated to be worth in excess of $I billion annually to Australia. Demands are rapidly increasing for information about, and access to, the Reef and its resources by tourists, other recreational users, commercial fishing and mariculture industries.
