The author expresses his views on the planned establishment of marine park "no take" zones in Australia. He believes that the creation of marine parks and "no take" zones in the region is proposed to justify the political or grant-dependent needs of lobbies and institutions. He also reflects on the issue of mismanagement in fish sanctuaries, marine reserves in environmentally sensitive regions, and "no take" zones that contributed to the sustainability of a stock.
