Abstract
Located within the Eyre Bioregion, the Gambier Islands Group Marine Park is located in the waters of the mouth of Spencer Gulf. The Gambier Islands Conservation Park, including North Island, South West Rock and Peaked Rocks, is overlaid by the marine park. The park also overlays a large portion of Crown Land on the south-western side of Wedge Island. Impacts of implementing the draft management plans were assessed against a base case scenario of no management plans. The base case is not static, and requires an understanding of the existing trends in natural resource, economic and social conditions. There are external factors which influence both the 'with management plan' and the base case scenarios that were taken into consideration.
