Pollution originating from diffuse and point sources may impact negatively on marine
environments, including marine parks. This can have undesirable economic consequences
for use and non‐use values, both within and outside the reserved area.
Bioeconomic modelling, where the biophysical and economic components of the marine
system are explicitly represented and linked is one method for assessing the ecological and
economic outcomes of pollution. Models can be used to determine the magnitude of
economic impacts, provide insights into cost‐effective pollution abatement options, help to
measure the effectiveness of marine reserves as a buffer against pollution shocks, and
examine optimal levels of pollution abatement.
This report provides a literature review of studies that may help inform future bioeconomic
modelling of pollution in NSW marine parks. Due to the limited number of Australian studies
directly related to this topic (and most of those are focussed on the Great Barrier Reef), a
range of other... [continues]
