NESP Emerging Priorities - Spatial distribution of marine wildlife in the Bremer Bay region (2017)$150,000
Description
To determine, as a first step, the distribution of marine wildlife across the Bremer Basin canyon region, both within the Bremer Bay Commonwealth Marine Reserve (CMR) and in the area adjacent to the CMR where a marine wildlife aggregation supports a regionally important ecotourism economy.

Quantification and prediction of marine biodiversity at a range of geographical and ecological scales for spatial protection and management (2012 - 2014)$150,000
Description
This project will deliver improved capacity to understand, manage and conserve Australia's unique Antarctic biodiversity and ecosystems through cutting edge research that will be delivered to Australian environmental decision makers and other key stakeholders. It will focus on quantifying and predicting offshore marine biodiversity to provide a consistent and comprehensive view using methods recently developed in Australia. It will deliver information that stakeholders need to better inform biodiversity management and policy and decision making in the short-term and into the future.

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.

Description
The aim of this project is to provide sound advice to inform environmental public policy objectives and to better the management of Australia's unique environment. The research will be collaborative - involving multiple institutions, and other research partners and end-users- and to incorporate multiple disciplines. It will specifically support national world-class environmental research that does not qualify for assistance under existing programmes
