Thursday 1 August 2013
Australia's north-east marine environment is recognised as one of the most sensitive and unique ecological regions in the world.

To ensure the continued protection of this precious resource, the North-East Shipping Management Plan (NESMP) has been developed in close consultation with a range of government agencies.

The plan sets out the Australian Government's intentions to enhance ship safety in the Great Barrier Reef, Torres Strait and Coral Sea regions and is now open for public comment until 4 October 2013.
