Australia | Fish much more abundant in no-take & no-entry zones of Great Barrier Reef Marine Park

SYDNEY, Nov. 9 (Xinhua) -- Commonly-fished species of fish are up to five times as prominent in protected areas of the Great Barrier Reef, a national Australian study has found.

The study, compiled by researchers from the University of Queensland, University of Western Australia (UWA), Curtin University, University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and University of Melbourne, found that protected areas can make a big difference even in lightly-fished areas.
