Esteemed colleagues

I acknowledge that this is not a scientific coral enquiry, but I think list
readers probably cover most diving locations around the world, so can
perhaps help. 

I am doing some research on the issue of dive site management. Does anyone
know of any MPA that is a popular dive site at which the management regime
includes dive marshals whose role it is to follow dive groups and monitor
their activities, and who have the authority to insist divers leave the
water for not "obeying" site rules (eg., touching coral reef with fins or
fingers, interfering with marine life)?

Any information gratefully received.

generations can no longer be taken for granted."
