Final Report


The central theme of our research is the interaction between threatened fish populations and a changing environment - and how Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary can adapt to these pressures, now and in the future.

Our aim is to develop alternative management strategies for Gray's Reef that ensure the longevity and productivity of ecologically significant species in the reef and beyond.
