Batemans Marine Park

A good day's fishing and plenty for tomorrow.

Batemans Marine Park

To be confident of our future catch, we need to ensure that the marine ecosystems that produce it stay healthy and productive. Marine Parks are a big part of that insurance.

For 100 kilometres along the coast and for 5 kilometres out to sea, the Batemans Marine Park protects the underwater landscape from mining, dredging and trawling. The reef, sponge gardens and seagrass meadows - and all the thousands of types of animals that live among them can continue to build a productive ecosystem.

Sports fishermen are a passionately selective lot. They guard their secret fishing places while happily taking every opportunity to boast of their greatest catches. It’s this contradiction in their character that makes them such interesting conversationalists, and even better conservationists. Particularly here in Eurobodalla.

So with the Batemans Marine Park there are now more fish than ever for you to catch today, and at the same time we’re making sure there’ll be plenty for your grandchildren to catch in the future.
