Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


The Encounter Marine Park straddles the transition between the Gulf St Vincent and Coorong Bioregions. It encompasses waters off southern metropolitan Adelaide and the Fleurieu Peninsula, extending past the Murray Mouth to the Coorong coast. The marine park includes all waters of Backstairs Passage and the eastern shores of Kangaroo Island.

Impacts of implementing the draft management plans were assessed against a base case scenario of no management plans. The base case is not static, and requires an understanding of the existing trends in natural resource, economic and social conditions. There are external factors which influence both the ‘with management plan’ and the base case scenarios that were taken into consideration.
