Coral Sea Bright Spot Reef Health and Resilience Survey ? 2022-24

Indicative Funding
$1,010,595 over 2 years
Summary
The Coral Sea Marine Park (CSMP) covers approximately 990,000 km2 and includes over 30 individual reef systems that are surrounded by deep waters. Extensive bleaching of corals was recorded across shallow reef habitats within the CSMP in 2020 and 2021. This project will use surveys of benthic, fish and invertebrate communities to assess the ongoing effects and potential recovery from these back-to-back bleaching events.

Moore Reef Grounding Assessment (Coral Sea Marine Park)

Indicative Funding
$51,487 over 1 year
Summary
A vessel was reported to have run aground at Moore Reef in the Coral Sea Marine Park in December 2022. This project will use surveys of the grounding site and surrounding habitat to understand the impact of the vessel grounding on reef habitats, and benthic and fish communities on Moore Reef.

Differential effects of sequential disturbances on the structure and function of reefs across the continental shelf

Indicative Funding
$15,000 over 1 year
Summary
On the Great Barrier Reef, the greatest distinction in benthic composition and herbivorous fish assemblage structure and function is found across the continental shelf, among inner-, mid- and outer-shelf reefs. Yet our understanding of how these unique assemblages respond and re-form following disturbances is limited. This project investigates changes in benthic composition and the structure, function and behaviour of herbivorous fish assemblages on inner-, mid- and outer-shelf reefs following multiple cyclone and bleaching events from 2015-2017. In doing so, this project will provide the first longitudinal study of cross-shelf assemblages and processes and improve understanding of reef recovery.

Coral reef research and monitoring in the Coral Sea Marine Park (CSMP).

Indicative Funding
$451,795 over 1 year
Summary
The Coral Sea Marine Park (CSMP) covers approximately 990,000 km2 and includes over 30 individual reef systems that are surrounded by deep waters. In March 2020 extensive bleaching of corals was recorded across shallow reef habitats within the CSMP. This project will use surveys of benthic, fish and invertebrate communities to assess the ongoing effects of the 2020 bleaching event on coral reefs within the CSMP.
