Marine parks

There are 6 marine parks in NSW that are declared and managed under the Marine Estate Management Act 2014 by NSW Department of Primary Industries.

Each of the 6 marine parks have an advisory committee that provides a voice for local communities to contribute to the management of the state's marine estate and the local marine park. They engage with local residents and stakeholders, provide a forum for local communities to raise issue and give valuable feedback to the government.

Find a fisheries office

There are fisheries offices across NSW, including inland offices in NSW's north west and south west, and across the coast in metropolitan and regional areas.

Contact details for all local fisheries offices can be found online.
