To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives assembled. The petition of certain citizens respectfully showeth.

That the area of Missionary Bay and Zoe Bay (boundaries as defined in GBRMPA zoning plan 1985), the Hinchinbrook Fish Habitat Reserve No. 9 and National Parks Nos. 6145 and 727 be zoned as Marine National Park `A' zone.

1. We feel the area is vital to recreational fishing and tourism.

2. We consider the areas as important breeding nursery and fish species caught by recreational fishermen.

The humble petitioners therefore pray that the area of Missionary Bay and Zoe Bay, the Hinchinbrook Fish Habitat Reserve No. 9 and National Parks Nos. 6145 and 727 be zoned as Marine National Park A Zone.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
