SAFER SHIPPING IN AUSTRALIA'S UNIQUE NORTH-EAST


News from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) is that consultation and public comment is being sought on Queensland's North-East Shipping Management Plan.

They advise that, '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.'
