Ships that endanger the environment in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park will now be liable for fines up to AU$1.1 million (equivalent to approximately US$600,000) which is a significant increase from the previous maximum fine of AU$110,000. Illegal fishing and prawn fishing may also incur similar fines.
