Red Rocks and Longay Marine Protected Area: business and regulatory impact assessment

Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment (BRIA) which looks at the social and economic impacts of the designation of the Red Rocks and Longay Marine Protected Area (MPA).

Competition Assessment

The introduction of fisheries management measures at the Red Rocks and Longay MPA may lead to competitive disadvantage for commercial fisheries actively operating within a given spatial area, potentially restricting the output capacity of the this sector. However, given that as an activity is likely to be displaced instead of lost, these impacts are negligible. It is not expected that the distribution of additional costs will be skewed towards smaller entrants relative to larger existing suppliers .
