Inshore GBR Reefs, derelict fishing line and benthic data, 2007-2009

This dataset includes mean values of derelict fishing line density, habitat structural complexity and live hard coral cover in 2009 for 94 sites in the Palm, Whitsunday and Keppel Island groups in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Australia. The file also includes a second worksheet with the total number of derelict fishing lines removed from 10 sites in the Palm Islands during 2007 and the 2007 to 2009 line accumulation rates for the same 10 sites.
