It's created a big "HOOHAH"..here in Perth.

It's a great idea but the implementation is all gonna be a mess!!  [-(

1. There are so many offshore block already "sold" for O & G exploration....how to take back???
2. How to police the areas??
3. Recreational fishing is such a big thing in Australia. How?

So I don't think it's well thought out and really no consultation with the people affected by the creation of the park areas.
