Most of Australia's once-widespread shellfish reefs have disappeared. A Hub study finds there is still time to arrest the decline, provided the threats that caused their destruction can be curtailed.
Looking for brothers and sisters among juvenile white sharks has provided the final pieces of information needed to estimate the size of populations in Australian waters.
Surfboard sampling . . . we've been working with Sydney and Gold Coast community groups to develop ‘citizen science’ protocols for water-quality monitoring near ocean outfalls.
See how a Marine Biodiversity Hub team rescued and relocated Largetooth Sawfish trapped in a drying floodplain waterhole.
What to consider before permitting shark and ray species to be removed from the wild and displayed in public aquaria.
A pilot survey in the Beagle Commonwealth Marine Reserve has found an unusually large group of Port Jackson sharks among sponge-covered deep rocky reefs.
An education package developed by the Hub is helping people look after vulnerable Largetooth Sawfish in the species' last remaining stronghold: the rivers of northern Australia.
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.
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.
