The combination of unique species of fish, coral reefs and other invertebrates, historical shipwrecks and the commercially valuable Western rock lobster makes the Abrolhos a unique area of Western Australia. In recognition of this the Minister of Fisheries is releasing the plan 'Management of Houtman Abrolhos System', following a period of public consultation. The islands are becoming increasingly popular destination for tourists that are attracted to the diving, fishing, bird watching, maritime history and other features of the Abrolhos. The draft Management Plan for Sustainable Tourism in the Houtman Abolhos Islands has been developed to provide a framework within which tourism can be developed on the islands. The goal of the draft Management Plan for Sustainable Tourism at the Houtman Abrolhos Islands is to: "Manage environmentally senstive nature-based tourism which is constent with the values of the Abrolhos System and provides appropriated access to the area for the community."
