Cabbage Tree Bay (by Shelly Beach in Manly) is a no-take reserve. However, we've often find fishing lines, sinkers and hooks in this area. People are not permitted to fish by any method, harm marine animals or plants, or collect marine organisms whether dead or alive in the area. The reserve covers about 20ha, including the entire bay, rocky shores and beaches from the southern end of Manly Beach to the northern end of Shelly Beach Headland.
