Massive changes are happening in our oceans and they're going largely unnoticed. Kelp forests, seagrasses, corals, shellfish reefs and mangroves are all declining, and some species have disappeared. We urgently need to better account for, and manage, these losses, which in large part result from human activity.

Protecting our underwater world

Professor of marine ecology and conservation science, Graham Edgar, is studying the impacts of human society on the marine environment. His research goal is to minimise threats so that we can leave the underwater environment in the best possible condition for future generations.

'Our descendants have a right to the natural values that we have now. With each loss of a species, they lose part of their heritage,' said Professor Edgar.

'Perhaps the biggest complication in understanding change is that the marine environment is out of sight, so no-one has a good idea of the scale of problems. What is clear is that natural populations are declining rapidly. For example, of the five shallow-water handfish species restricted to shallow Tasmanian waters, one hasn't been seen for 200 years, another two for over 10 years, while the remaining two species have total populations numbering less than a few thousand individuals.

'In Hobart, much of our food supply once came from oysters, which were harvested from massive oyster reefs that also maintained good water quality in our estuaries. In the late 1800s, these reefs disappeared due to dredging, sediment runoff down rivers, and perhaps also introduced parasites.'

Professor Edgar has conducted the largest analysis of the effects of fishing worldwide. His research compared fish stocks in 87 marine-protected areas in over 30 countries with those in similar areas that are fished. The findings have been used to identify ways that management of marine-protected areas can be improved, allowing better conservation outcomes.

Professor Edgar said the greatest challenge with marine research is collecting sufficient data at the large scales relevant to management decision-making, which means fieldwork that extends across state, national and global scales. To facilitate this process, he founded the Reef Life Survey Foundation, which enlists the help of recreational divers for data collection.

'A critical need in marine research is baseline data that can be used to monitor changes through the future. Over 200 enthusiastic recreational divers have agreed to dedicate time to scientific data collection. With their support, we now have arguably the world's best set of quantitative baseline data, with information on numbers of over 4000 fish and invertebrate species at over 2500 sites distributed worldwide. Many sites are surveyed each year.'

Baseline data can be used to determine the source of changes to the environment. This can inform management practices for industry.

'For example, a decline in shark numbers could be due to fishing practices, climate change, or something else entirely. We can compare changes in fish numbers in fished versus unfished areas to help determine whether fishing is involved.'

Professor Edgar's expertise sees him frequently advising government on policy regarding the marine environment. He has several popular books, including Australian Marine Life: The plants and animals of temperate waters, and received the highest awards in the marine and environmental science fields in Australia.

But, success for Professor Edgar is measured by the legacy he leaves for positive benefits in marine conservation. 'If my work contributes to safeguarding the survival of marine species, then my primary goal will have been achieved,' he said.

Professor Graham Edgar is a generalist marine scientist, with a career path encompassing a variety of fields, as well as interdisciplinary areas. His interests and scientific publications cover seaweed/fish/invertebrate interactions; marine biodiversity; crustacean and fish taxonomy; seagrass habitat ecology; temperate reef ecology; estuarine ecology; marine protected areas; effects of fishing, aquaculture, oil spills, sedimentation, introduced species and global warming on the marine environment; threatened marine species; and marine conservation planning.

Biography

Graham Edgar graduated with a BSc degree from University of Sydney, followed by Honours and a PhD at the University of Tasmania studying interactions between macro-algae, invertebrates and fishes. He then embarked on a series of post-doctoral studies. His first, at CSIRO's Marmion laboratory (Western Australia), examined the trophic role of lobsters in seagrass ecosystems. It was followed by a year at the Amakusa Marine Biological Laboratory in Japan where he developed a novel, and now widely-used method, for estimating secondary production of benthic communities.

Subsequently, studies into the plankton, benthos and fishes in isolated Port Davey in SW Tasmania exposed him to southern Australia's most pristine temperate marine environment. This led to an increasing interest in the effects of human activity on marine environments.

Whilst based at Melbourne University, he investigated the effect of seagrass loss on fish and benthic invertebrates across southern Australia, with particular focus on Western Port. These studies showed the great value of ecological studies at continental scales in generating findings of broad significance. Over the next two decades he became an expert on human impacts on coastal environments, and a specialist of tanaidacean crustaceans. With an ongoing emphasis on field studies, he developed with co-workers huge multi-year ecological data sets over broad geographic, time and taxonomic scales.

The effectiveness of Marine Protected Areas subsequently became a recurrent research focus, with nineteen journal papers so far published on the topic. A notable feature of this work has been collaboration with government researchers and formal linkages with conservation departments in five Australian States, as well as with management and research agencies in Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Costa Rica.

Graham's strong eastern tropical Pacific connections developed from two years as leader of Marine Science and Conservation at the Charles Darwin Research Station in the Galapagos Islands – a period of rapid management change when zoning plans for the Galapagos Marine Reserve were formalised and fishery quotas negotiated. From these experiences, he is now regarded as an authority on tropical eastern Pacific reef ecology.

Throughout his career, Graham has established strong links with private industry and the community. The environmental consultancy company that he formed with two others eighteen years ago (Aquenal Pty Ltd) has established a niche reputation for high quality environmental impact and assessment work.

Expertise

Professor Edgar has made major contributions internationally within the fields of marine ecology and conservation, in particular through studies assessing (i) interactions between macrofaunal invertebrates, fishes and plants, (ii) important metabolic-based regularities in faunal communities, and (iii) threats to marine biodiversity. Recent studies have primarily involved investigation over time of large-scale human impacts on marine ecosystems (in Tasmania, WA, SA, Victoria, NSW and the eastern tropical Pacific), including effects of fishing, sedimentation, oil spills, introduced species and aquaculture. 

A notable aspect of recent studies is that they involve broad spatial, temporal and taxonomic scales. These studies have been particularly innovative in showing that studies at continental geographic scales, where outcomes of wide generality are deduced, can be conducted at low cost. In the field of macro-invertebrate ecology, He has led development of a metabolic approach to identifying and understanding community level patterns. This novel approach has identified predictable regularities in community structure that have a basis in theories of predation, competition, consumption and production.

Projects

Natural values of the World Heritage waters of Macquarie Harbour (2015)$52,000
Description
The project is based around a ten day survey within the TWWHA component of Macquarie Harbour. The survey will be conducted during summerautumn of 2015 and will focus on benthic communities (including epi-benthic invertebrate fauna and in-fauna), smaller fish communities (particularly at deeper depths) and aspects of the Maugean skate use of this area, such as presence of eggs, that may compliment past and current research on this species. The methodology will follow current practice for sampling each of the faunal groups to be sampled. For in-fauna, sampling will be via sediment cores in to a similar manner to that undertaken in Bathurst Harbour/Port Davey, Tasmanian estuarine biodiversity research, the My Lyell mine remediation study, and in Salmonid marine farm monitoring programs (including Macquarie Harbour). Replicated samples will be collected throughout the TWWHA region and at a range of depths, from the immediate subtidal down to 20 m. Epi-benthic mobile invertebrate fauna will be censured via timed swims with abundance recorded on a log scale as per rapid biodiversity assessment methods described for the Derwent Estuary.

Improving prediction of rocky reef ecosystem responses to human impacts (2015 - 2019)$1,352,100
Description
The project aims to add a new functional dimension to the understanding of inshore ecosystems, facilitatingimproved management of our living marine heritage. Project goals are to (i) extend huge field datasets on thedensity and distribution of thousands of marine fishes, invertebrates and macro-algae, (ii) combine these datausing recent advances in quantitative ecological modelling to describe transfer of biomass between species athundreds of sites with primary focus on southern Australia, and (iii) provide site-level indices of major food webprocesses that, when combined with before, after, control, impact data, allow improved prediction of ecologicalconsequences of fishing, climate change, pest outbreaks, and pollution.

Effects of Invasive Macrofauna on Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Function (2012 - 2014)$180,000
Description
This project will clarify the functional role of macrofauna, a key but poorly studied faunal component of estuarine and marine ecosystems that channels production of plants to higher consumers such as fishes, while also reducing harmful blooms of epiphytic algae. Through experimental deployment of field microcosms, the project will investigate relationships between species richness, functional redundancy of species, and ecosystem services, with emphasis on perturbations to these relationships caused by the introduction of new invasive macrofaunal species. The importance of environmental conditions, particular disturbance, in facilitating resistance of native macrofaunal invertebrates to invasion by introduced pests will also be quantified.

Scientific Support for Managing Australia's Marine Biodiversity - A National Marine Biodiversity Hub (2011 - 2015)$12,994,000
Description
The overall objective of this project is to provide scientific information and advice that will support DEWHA in decision making in the marine environment, specifically in implementing and monitoring its marine bioregional plans, developing the NRSMPA, and support the information needs of ERIN and AWD and providing key baseline information for the Heritage Division. This will be accomplished through five tightly integrated national programs, which will include the engagement of DEWHA staff in program development prior to any research commencing. The scope is national. It matches DEWHA's responsibilities and will allow researchers to provide consistent scientific data, information and advice to the Commonwealth, States and NT. New survey activity will be focussed off Northern Australia (NW to Coral Sea), in recognition of its global marine biodiversity significance, the rapidly increasing pressures facing this region and the paucity of current information. The five research programs are: 1) National Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting; 2) Integrated Management of Marine Biodiversity; 3) National Ecosystems Knowledge; 4) Regional Biodiversity Discovery to Support Marine Bioregional Plans; 5) Improved Management Options for Listed Species and Communities.

Biotic connectivity within the temperate Australian marine protected area network at three levels of biodiversity - communities, populations and genes (2010 - 2015)$1,635,800
Description
This project will integrate broad spatial-, temporal- and taxonomic-scale datasets with phylogenetic hierarchies and taxonomic expertise to address key ecological and biogeographical questions related to: (i) historical and contemporary factors that have shaped the distribution of marine fauna around the southeastern Australian coast; (ii) factors affecting connectivity of gene flow between reefs; (iii) relationships between genetic richness and population stability; and (iv) optimal design of Australia's marine protected area network. The project builds on existing ecological datasets that are unique global in spatial and temporal scale, adding a phylogenatic dimension through rapid recent advances in population genetics and taxonomy.
