Jacquomo Monk is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies. He works within the National Environmental Science Programmes' Marine Biodiversity Hub, forming a part of the group of IMAS researchers working on monitoring Australia's Commonwealth Marine Reserve Network. As a quantitative spatial ecologist within this multidisciplinary group, his work focuses on developing cost-effective tools for monitoring marine biodiversity. In particular, he is developing biologically relevant indicators for making good conservation decisions.

Biography

Prior to joining IMAS, Jac was a post-doctoral researcher in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at Deakin University. During his time at Deakin he also carried an undergraduate teaching load, teaching units in geographic information systems (GIS), ecological research methods and conservation science. Before this he was employed as a marine ecologist at an environmental consultancy in Melbourne.

Research Themes

Through his involvement in the Marine Biodiversity Hub, Jac's research aligns to the University's research theme of Marine, Antarctic and Maritime. His research interests focus on applied issues around conservation and natural resource management in the marine environment. Effective conservation actions can only be made when suitable information is available. Biodiversity monitoring plays an important role in this process as it allows for the identification, assessment and prioritisation of species of concern. However resources for monitoring will always be limited. Therefore much of Jac's research focuses on developing approaches that deliver cost-efficient monitoring, targeted at measuring appropriate indicators for making good decisions. Of particular interest is investigating optimal monitoring of marine species (particularly fishes and other harvested species; Monk 2014, Rattray et al. 2014, Jalali et al. 2015a). To do this Jac, uses tools such as remote underwater video (such as towed and baited cameras; Monk et al. 2012), multibeam sonar (Monk et al. 2011), LiDAR (Zavalas et al. 2014), satellite and aerial photography (Monk et al. 2008) in a geospatial modelling framework to quantify spatial patterns and longitudinal trends in species distribution and abundance (Monk et al. 2010, Ierodiaconou et al. 2011, Jalali et al. 2015b).

Projects

Tasman Fracture Marine Park demersal fish, rock lobster and sessile benthic community surveys (2021)$329,010
Description
This project, funded by Parks Australia, is to undertake a repeat survey of biological assets within the shelf waters of the Tasman Fracture Marine Park and nearby similar habitats at SW Cape and in the adjacent Huon Marine Park, comparing changes through time occurring in the no-take sanctuary zone of the TFMP with those occurring at external sites open to fishing, including within open access zones in the Huon and Tasman Fracture Marine Parks. The IMAS staff involved, include researchers involved in the initial survey in 2015, associated with the NESP Marine biodiversity Hub.

Characterisation of reef and soft sediment in the Huon and Freycinet Marine Parks using BRUVs and ROVs (2021 - 2022)$300,380
Description
This project builds on NESP Hub engagement with Parks Australia in undertaking research into appropriate monitoring methods for the new Australian Marine park network in the SE Australian region. Here we apply the use of BRUVs (Baited Underwater Video) for this first time in the Huon and Freycinet Marine Parks to establish a sound baseline of fish assemblages on reef and soft sediment habitat, as well as trial the application of ROV-based video transects to describe fish assemblages using the mew IMAS ROV-Boxfish. The results will have benefits for Parks, State fishery management, and improve our understanding of patterns of fish biodiversity in Tas coastal/shelf waters.

Biological input into the IMOS UMI project SIMS sub-contract (2020 - 2022)$71,719
Description
This project provides expert biological input and knowledge of national AUV and RLS-base imagery datasets and image annotation into the new UMI facility of IMOS, being established by SIMS as lead project manager. The position works with software developers to provide the necessary tools to annotate marine seabed imagery, develop a shared national species (photo) inventory, a national database for storage and sharing of annotation data, and an ability to match expert-based human annotations with exact spatial locations on imagery to enable future annotation of marine imagery by machine-learning-based computer algorithms to automate the feature annotation process for key species and reporting groups (cuch as kelps/corals).

Description
Developing the Seamap Australia (www.seamapaustralia.org) platform to specifically meet the needs of users in Government and industry. This will be achieved through a workshop to identify knowledge gaps and stakeholder needs for efficient management, and developing the web platform based on user priorities. Expected outcomes include support for multidimensional management, increased efficiency and effectiveness of management decisions, and advanced higher research.

Understanding the spatial links between geomorphology and biodiversity distribution in the Coral Sea Australian Marine Park. (2019)$0
Description
Our research will reveal how deep water benthic habitats are related to geomorphic features on the seafloor. Using advance marine sonar and deep under water video technology we will examine how different habitats are distributed across a variety of geomorphic structures within the Coral Sea Marine Park. The seafloor habitats in this marine park are poorly understood and given the recent release of the Australian Marine Park (AMP) rezoning it is particularly important to understand the variability of these habitats. We can use this data to compare to seamount habitats in temperate locations such as the Huon AMP.
