Abstract
Located in the Otway Bioregion, the Lower South East Marine Park covers 360 km2 and is divided into two sections: the first adjacent to Canunda National Park and the second extending from Port MacDonnell Bay just west of French Point to the Victorian border. 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.
