Associate Professor Catriona Macleod is Deputy Head of the Fisheries and Aquaculture Centre within IMAS, and a senior research fellow with specific expertise in environmental impact assessment. A key research focus has been improving understanding of the environmental impacts and interactions of finfish aquaculture, and in providing the system understanding and recommendations to support sustainable development and management of aquaculture operations. She also has an interest in heavy metal contamination and how management actions in coastal/ estuarine systems can influence the impacts of metals, both in terms of bioavailability and ecotoxicity.

Biography

Catriona completed her undergraduate degree in Marine Biology at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, and has a GIBiol (Hons equivalent) in Behavioural Ecology from the University of West Scotland. Catriona then worked in a variety of research and development support roles within the aquaculture industry. Firstly, as Assistant Development Manager (Stock Improvement Programme) for Marine Harvest International in Scotland and then as Hatchery Production Manager for Saltas Pty Ltd in Tasmania. Whilst with Saltas she undertook an MSc degree (part-time) with UTAS, looking at tools for assessing the environmental impacts of salmonid farming, which saw her return to soft sediments and invertebrate ecology. This instigated a change in career and Catriona took up an Invertebrate Ecologist position in the Centre for Introduced Marine Pests (CRIMP). She continued in this role until 1997, when she moved to the state government research laboratories and returned to the assessment of salmon farming impacts. Completing a PhD in 2006 with UTAS, she then took up a position at the Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute within the Estuaries and Coasts Program as research group leader for Ecosystem Effects of Aquaculture. Catriona is now deputy head of the IMAS Fisheries and Aquaculture centre.

Research Themes

Catriona's research aligns to the University's Marine, Antarctic and Maritime and Environment, Resources and Sustainability research themes. Her research interests include  evaluation of the options for expansion of salmonid aquaculture in Tasmanian waters; development of risk-based tools supporting consultation, planning and adaptive management for aquaculture and other multiple-uses of the coastal waters of southern Tasmania; tracking methyl mercury contamination pathways in key commercially and recreationally fished species; clarifying the relationship between salmon farm nutrient loads and changes in macroalgal community structure/distribution; heavy metal contamination in the Derwent estuary bird community; engaging the creative industries with the sciences to develop interdisciplinary approaches to urban water issues; assessment of the environmental impacts and sediment remediation potential associated with copper contamination from antifouling paint (and associated recommendations for management); and determination of the baseline levels of selected total petroleum hydrocarbons and nutrients in sediment and water to assist with the establishment of a marine finfish aquaculture industry in the Mid-West of Western Australia.

Expertise

Dr Catriona MacLeod has more than 20 years' experience working in the Aquaculture industry in a variety of roles. Much of her research to date has focussed on improving our understanding of the relationship between aquaculture operations and local environmental conditions, with a view to supporting sustainable development and improving management practices.

More recently, Catriona's focus and that of her research team and students has expanded to address environmental impact assessment more broadly. System-wide impacts, the ecological and functional effects of metal contamination, sediment remediation, and the relationship between environmental assessment and broader community values are key elements of our research.

Research outputs from her team have been used to inform regulatory policy and strategic research direction for aquaculture activities locally and internationally, and our metals research has resulted in advisories to protect public health. Her advice is frequently sought on marine environmental issues, both within Australia and overseas and she has served on several international review committees.

In précis, Catriona'a research experience is focussed in:

  • Marine ecology - particularly benthic interactions
  • Environmental impact assessment
  • Aquaculture environmental interactions
  • Metal contamination
  • Invertebrate taxonomy
  • Community engagement and science extension/communication

Awards

  • Aquafin CRC research team (July 2007) - received special acknowledgement from the Minister for the Environment and Water Resources (Hon Malcolm Turnbull) for 'research into understanding the impacts of Atlantic salmon on local and regional environment'.
  • Finalist in the Rural Woman of the Year awards (2011)
  • Nominated for the Tasmanian Scientist of the Year awards (2012)
  • Finalist in 2015 Tasmanian Seafood Industry Awards (Research Development & Extension Category)
  • Nominated for VC Community Engagement Award 2015

Collaboration

Catriona is currently involved in a number of national and international collaborations aimed at improving the understanding and environmental management of aquaculture operations worldwide, including an EU Horizon 2020 bid which is bringing together over 20 countries. However, key partnerships (and co-tutelle student collaborations) currently exist with the University of St Andrews (UK), SAMS (UK), Southampton University (UK) and the Cawthron Institute in New Zealand.

Publications

Catriona has authored a substantial number of research outputs comprising more than 120 publications in total. Her highest cited publication has been cited 157 times, with more than 70% of her publications being cited more than 10 times. In order to maximise the impacts of her research Catriona's publications contain a balance of both high impact international journals, reports and more applied publications. Whilst it is essential that research is published for peer review in academic journals, it is also important that research findings, which can lead to improvements in management or environmental outcomes, are provided to relevant stakeholders (i.e. industry, government and community) in such a way that it can be easily understood and incorporated into practice. Hence the need for more applied publication outputs, reports and targeted communication mechanisms such as workshops, newsletters and technical guides. Catriona is committed to improving science engagement and uptake.

Understanding oxygen dynamics and the importance for benthic recovery in Macquarie Harbour (2017 - 2018)$743,111
Description
Sustainable finfish aquaculture is dependent on a benthic environment that can assimilate and process farm particulate wastes. This project will help inform the likely effectiveness and duration of any given fallowing or remediation strategy, and as such is essential for both operational management of farming activities and the long-term management of the harbour. This will involve a combination of benthic surveys, a real time observation network and oxygen transport modelling. The central outcome of this research will be better advice on appropriate fallowing and remediation strategies for the conditions currently occurring in Macquarie Harbour. Robust scientific understanding of benthic and water column condition in the Harbour, with a particular focus on dissolved oxygen dynamics in the water column, will provide a much better appreciation of the response of benthic communities to fallowing and remediation strategies.

Managing ecosystem interactions across differing environments: building flexibility and risk assurance into environmental management strategies. (2015 - 2018)$935,011
Description
This project aims to support sustainable development of the aquaculture industry by providing regionally relevant environmental management advice to both government and industry. Specifically this project will provide robust monitoring and management advice and strategies that take into account the nuances of local farming environments. This will result in improvements in:RISK ASSESSMENT - Providing an understanding of regional variabilityinsediment processes/recovery associated and benthic/ pelagiccoupling with existing and newly developed farming operations and the resultant implications for any assumptions used in both monitoring and in predictive (biogeochemical and depositional) modelling.BENCHMARKING - Comparing environmental monitoring and management approaches in existing and newly developed farming areas based on previous impact/recovery understanding and associated monitoringand regulation criteria to establish those response principles thatarecommon to all areas and those that are regionally specific (with specific reference to visual assessments and biological and biogeochemical measures).MANAGEMENT ADVICE - Providing fit for purpose management advice to government and industry that allows regionally structured optimisationof farm management, along with risk appropriate management and monitoring criteria in different locations. Providing an understanding of the ecological significance of any differences in observed effects across regions and how that information might be used to inform and improve site specific and regional modelling and management approaches.

Postgrad Research Funds - M. Auluck - Characterising benthic pelagic interactions in Macquarie Harbour - organic matter processing in sediments and the importance for nutrient dynamics (2013 - 2014)$25,262
Description
Macquarie Harbour has been supporting salmon farming for the past 10 years however detailed understanding of the harbour is lacking thereby impeding necessary measures to help create an ecologically sustainable fish farming practice. The objective of this project therefore is to examine the relationship between nutrient flux rates, nutrient pathways and also sediment and water variables in Macquarie Harbour in relation to salmon fish farming. Survey works for this project involve grabbing sediment cores for nutrient fluxes will be measures. Other sediment variables would also be obtained such as macrofauna abundance and biomass, microalgae biomass and particle size distribution. The information and data obtained from this project will be used to calibrate existing water column and sediment modelling of the harbour, which Will be used as a reference to develop better management tool to further sustain the environmental health of the harbour.

Heavy Metal Contamination in the Derwent estuary bird community: assessing trophic differences (2013)$5,545
Description
In this funding application we are specifically seeking funds to support the analysis of metal levels in bird feathers (arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, manganese, mercury, selenium, and zinc). This will allow us to examine differences in metal uptake among species relative to trophic level and trophic pathways; and, identify if metal concentrations are within the range known to cause adverse effects.
