    Abstract

    This project forms part of the Wealth from Oceans Flagship Ningaloo Collaboration Cluster. The main objectives are (1) to determine the spatial and temporal distribution of recreational activities (e.g., fishing, diving, snorkelling, kayaking, surfing etc) within the reef lagoon system at Ningaloo Marine Park (NMP) and (2) to relate distribution patterns to factors such as biodiversity, physical conditions, park zoning, access roads and accommodation nodes.
