Discussions Discussion Life on the Reef: Amazing World of Coral Fish…
Jessie Rhodes, April 13, 2012

Great Barrier Reef ‘not so great’:

“So the question is: why has coral cover continued to decline when the Great Barrier Reaf is being managed with a management regime often recognised as ‘the best managed coral reef system in the world’, based on a strong science-for-management ethic?”

In a nut shell, the stressors which are known to be most responsible for the loss of coral cover and general ‘reef health’ were terrestrial pollution including the link to outbreaks of crown of thorns starfish, fishing impacts and climate change.

And effective action on climate change has yet to begin either nationally or globally.
