Scientific sampling off south-eastern Australia has found high concentrations of microplastics in seafloor sediments, including along even remote stretches of coastline.
The Investigator has returned from its voyage to the abyss with a precious cargo of weird and wonderful animals. Some of the fishes collected, and more than one third of the invertebrates, may be new to science.
The Marine Hub has created the following two-sided posters from its marine biodiversity research:
Ecologically or biologically significant marine areas (EBSAs) are special areas in the ocean that serve important purposes, in one way or another, to support the healthy functioning of oceans and the many services that it provides. This video is based on the outcomes of the EBSA workshop for the Southern Indian Ocean held in Mauritius in July 2012. Marine Hub researchers Nic Bax and Piers Dunstan provided technical advice to the workshop.
An international team of 40 scientists is set to embark on a pioneering voyage to study Australia’s eastern abyss.
Integrating scientific monitoring programs and broad-scale citizen scientist surveys to assess biodiversity on Australia's shallow reefs.
The chances of being attacked by a shark are low but a spate of bites off north NSW and more beach closures in Victoria and WA have put beachgoers on edge. So what’s going on?
We're determining where large marine animals are most in danger of colliding with vessels, to support a national strategy for reducing the risk.
A Marine Biodiversity Hub team sets out on a collaborative ‘search and rescue mission’ for threatened Largetooth Sawfish, building capacity for sawfish conservation along the way.
Lainey James and Margot Delaporte have completed their first trip aboard the Australian Maritime College Research Vessel Bluefin. The Hub research team revisited reef systems in the Freycinet Commonwealth Marine Reserve.
