Ecotoxicology of pesticides on the Great Barrier Reef for guideline development and risk assessments

Indicative Funding
$205,975 over 3 years (administered by Australian Institute of Marine Science)
Summary
Over 50 land-sourced pesticides have been detected in waters of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) and its catchments. Previous studies on the risks posed by pesticides have focused on five priority PSll herbicides. However, other pesticides are increasingly being used, for which there are few fate, persistence and toxicity data. In order to improve water quality guidelines and assessments of the potential risks posed by these ' alternate' pesticides to GBR and its catchments we will quantify their toxicity to freshwater and marine species.
Investigators
Andrew Negri and Shelley Templeman in collaboration with Joost van Dam, Frederieke Kroon, Florita Flores, Simon Harries, Aaron Davis, Stephen Lewis, Jochen Mueller, Sarit Kaserzon, Reinier Mann, Rachael Smith and Katherine Martin (Australian Institute of Marine Science, TropWater, The University of Queensland, QLD Department of Science, Information Technology and Innovation and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority)
