Great Barrier Reef Foundation - Reef Trust Partnership

IMR Integrated Reef Fish Monitoring Program

Indicative Funding
$1,464,814 over 2 years (administered by Australian Institute of Marine Science)
Summary
While critical knowledge of the abundance, diversity, and assemblage composition of Great Barrier Reef (GBR) fishes has been delivered by comprehensive and systematic monitoring programs across various spatial and temporal scales to date, significant knowledge gaps remain. These are being addressed through an Integrated Inshore Reef Fish Monitoring Program, funded by the Great Barrier Reef Foundation (GBRF) reef trust partnership and headed by the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) This project is a major component of this program and aims to monitor fish communities and habitats on the fringing reefs of 8 inshore island groups in the GBR Marine Park. It will continue an existing monitoring program that has been monitoring 4 island groups since 1998, and will expand on this legacy monitoring program considerably by adding four additional island groups which have not been previously monitored. It is part of a large-scale collaborative program, the Integrated Monitoring and Reporting (IMR) Inshore Fish Monitoring Project, funded by the Great Barrier Reef Foundation (GBRF) reef trust partnership and headed by the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS).

Ecological significance of gorgonian sea fans on coral reefs and the consequences of declining health.

Indicative Funding
$2,000 over 2 years
Summary
Gorgonian sea fans are iconic biotic structures on coral reefs that draw attention to photographers wishing to illustrate the diversity and beauty of coral reef habitats. They provide a unique habitat for a huge variety myriad of coral reef fishes and invertebrates. However, in recent years sea fans have suffered from a variety of anthropogenic stresses that have increased the prevalence of disease. The degree to which associated fishes and invertebrates are dependent on sea fans and the consequences of declining health are unknown. This project aims to quantify the abundance and spatial distributions of gorgonian sea fans, to examine the fauna that live in them, and to evaluate the effects of declining health at two locations (Orpheus Island, Australia and in Kimbe Bay, Papua New Guinea). Habitat composition and reef morphology will be analyzed to assess gorgonian habitat preferences. The health of sea fans will be quantified and the effects of different stages of declining health on fishes and invertebrates will be assessed.
