South East Australia – Marine Ecosystem Study

South East Australia – Marine Ecosystem Study 2000 1498 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) – Australia

This project will conduct a series of multi-disciplinary scientific voyages focused on the southeast Australian marine ecosystem, a recognized global climate change hotspot that is regularly affected by marine heatwaves.

It has been co-designed with stakeholders from a range of human activities and amenities including fisheries, marine parks, oil and gas, and emerging renewable energy industries in response to increasing concern and uncertainty about the effects of climate change and human activities on the ecological, economic and social sustainability of the region.

By partnering with key stakeholders from the region from the design of the project to delivery, this project will provide key information for multiple-use management of the region, particularly for the conservation and biodiversity management of Australian marine parks and for ensuring the effective management and sustainability of industry sectors.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Marine Life 2030
