Australian Marine Science Conference Eventranet 2017

Concurrent session 4: S13: Commonwealth Marine Parks: research for management


Chair: Amanda Parr
Australian Marine Parks, also known as Commonwealth Marine Reserves, cover around a third of Australia’s Exclusive Economic Zone and include sub-Antarctic to tropical environments. This symposium will address the range of knowledge about these vast and diverse offshore marine environments and discuss how this knowledge is, or can be, used in managing Australian Marine Parks. Presentations are invited that address the following questions: How do we improve our scientific understanding of these ecosystems? How to integrate our knowledge across marine science disciplines? How do we best ensure that the information is useful for managers? What are the highest priorities for research in Australian Marine Parks?
