The Australian Bureau of Rural Sciences is reviewing the impact of rezoning the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Elected officials in Australia requested the review because they believe the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority cannot justify closing more than 30 percent of the reef to fishing without additional research.
