Re: ''Marine parks close for reef recovery'' (BP, May 16). If the pattern of previous years is repeated, the dive sites at Surin and the Similan will not ''recover from damage caused by tourists'' as you state. What will happen is likely to be far worse. Local boats will move in, take most of the reef fish to sell at Chatuchak and elsewhere, and when the tourists return on Nov 1, we will be hearing the question, Where have all the fish gone? as we always do.
