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.

Assessing effectiveness of refuge areas for conservation of coastal sharks (2011 - 2013)$86,635
Description
This project seeks to extend work on investigating the role of sevengill sharks Notorynchus cepedianus in coastal areas of south east Tasmania. A major component of the current project is using acoustic technology to investigate the movement patterns of sevengill sharks within these coastal areas. This project will continue using acoustic technology to gather long term data on the movement patterns for the chondrichthyan assemblage of south east Tasmania. Due to the availability of long term infrastructure in the form of permanent VR2 receiver arrays deployed throughout south east Australia, this project has a unique opportunity to monitor long term and long distance movement patterns for several chondrichthyan species tagged with acoustic transmitters in south east Tasmania. Additionally this project aims to determine the size and age structure of juvenile shark populations in nursery areas by using stereo baited remote underwater video cameras (BRUVs) as a survey tool. This multi-species approach will address a range of relevant issues associated with managing and conserving chondrichthyans, such as identifying important habitats for chondrichthyan species, evaluating the effectiveness of protected areas, investigate long distance migrations and predicting predator-prey relationships. The project will have a strong emphasis on conservation and management of top order predators, and will provide optimal management strategies for a number of shark species. This project will address the need for a broader understanding of ecosystem issues in the management of commercial fisheries. For example, it will further build on the knowledge of species interactions in these systems by evaluating the impact of sevengill sharks on other shark species that are commercially fished. This information will assist in ecosystem management (as opposed to single species management) which should be the goal of all conservation and fisheries management plans.
