Article
Conventional systems of government have not been very successful in resolving coastal management problems. This lack of progress is partially attributable to inadequate representation in governance processes of the variety of knowledges present on the coast. In particular there has been a struggle to engage effectively with climate science and its...

The scoping of requirements and evaluation of suitability of CWQM technology involved: (1) definition of the priority observational requirements to support the development and operation of eReefs models; (2) evaluation of the range of environmental conditions that occur in Great Barrier Reef (GBR) fresh, estuarine and marine waters; (3) a prioritis...
Article
Increasingly, social considerations are having an influence on fisheries policy as well as day-to-day management decision making. Social objectives, unlike economic or conservation objectives, are often poorly defined in fisheries policy, providing substantial leeway for managers to develop management plans in response to the perceived importance o...
Article
Full-text available
Predicting who may leave a fishery is an important consideration when designing capacity reduction programs to enhance both ecological and economic sustainability. In this paper, the relationship between satisfaction and the desire to exit a fishery is examined for the Queensland East Coast Trawl fishery. Income from fishing, and changes in income...
Article
Natural resource management has long recognised that the multi-objective nature of management is important, but has struggled to operationalise this into quantitative, measurable objectives for functional use in management. Operationalising broader ecological and social objectives has been particularly problematic. In fisheries management, the focu...
Article
Full-text available
There is increasing interest in protecting, restoring and creating ‘blue carbon’ ecosystems (BCE; mangroves, tidal marshes and seagrasses) to sequester atmospheric CO2-C and thereby contribute to climate change mitigation. While a growing number of countries aspire to report greenhouse gas emission and carbon sequestration changes from these ecosys...
Article
Over the past 50 years, the diversity of fisheries types being actively managed has changed from mainly data-rich, industrial sectors to more socially, economically, and environmentally complex multispecies and multisector fisheries. Accompanying this change has been a broadening of management objectives to include social and economic consideration...
Article
Full-text available
Policies aiming to preserve vegetated coastal ecosystems (VCE; tidal marshes, mangroves and seagrasses) to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions require national assessments of blue carbon resources. Here, we present organic carbon (C) storage in VCE across Australian climate regions and estimate potential annual CO2 emission benefits of VCE conservati...
Article
Full-text available
The use of biodiversity offsets as a means to mitigate environmental damage whilst also accommodating for urban developer interests is becoming an increasingly popular policy mechanism. However, biodiversity offsets are not without their criticisms, and financial offsets have gained a reputation for allowing developers to buy their way out of respo...
Article
Full-text available
Ecosystem based fisheries management (EBFM) provides a framework to achieve ecological, economic and social sustainability in fisheries. However, developing harvest strategies to achieve these multiple objectives is complex. This is even more so in multi-sector multi-species fisheries. In our study, we develop such harvest strategies for the multi-...
Chapter
Blue carbon policy supports carbon sequestration whilst also conserving our remaining seagrass meadows. The complex biogeochemical processes within the sediment of seagrass meadows are responsible for the longevity of the stored carbon. Carbon stock and accumulation rates are controlled by the interaction of hydrodynamic, geochemical and biotic pro...

Oceans affect nearly all components of our lives. Eight of the world’s 10 largest cities are located on the coast and over half the world’s population lives within 200 km of the coast, and around one-quarter within 100 km. Nearly nine in 10 Australians live within 50 km of the coast. Australia is connected to the rest of the world through a global...

People have been using marine resources for millennia for food, transportation, recreation and cultural purposes (Chapter 6). Advances in technology over recent decades have made it technically and economically feasible to access and use a wider range of living and non-living marine resources. Current annual ocean economic activity globally is esti...

Mangrove forests, tidal marshes, and seagrass ecosystems provide economic, environmental and social benefits for Australia with additional benefits being possible through their ability to capture and store carbon. A participatory stakeholder and expert workshop was conducted in Canberra on 28 July 2016 to scope potential for the inclusion of coasta...
Article
Full-text available
Report cards are increasingly used to provide ongoing snap-shots of progress towards specific ecosystem health goals, particularly in coastal regions where planners need to balance competing demands for coastal resources from a range of industries. While most previous report cards focus on the biophysical components of the system, there is a growin...

Management across the catchment-coast-ocean continuum remains one of the greatest Natural Resource Management (NRM) challenges still to be addressed in Australia. To do so requires an underpinning Coastal Knowledge platform that integrates observational (e.g. monitoring and remote sensing) data with modeling of catchment, estuarine and coastal proc...

Bush Stone-curlews (Burhinus grallarius) occur in high densities on Coochiemudlo Island in southern Moreton Bay and other offshore islands. This contrasts with the situation on the adjacent mainland and in southern Australia. In order to start to understand why Bush Stone-curlews are more abundant on islands, we examined the trend in community coun...
