Marine monitoring

The objective for the Marine Monitoring Program is to assess trends in ecosystem health and resilience indicators for the Great Barrier Reef in relation to water quality and its links to end-of-catchment pollutants. There are three monitoring sub-components—water quality (including pesticides), seagrass and coral. The reporting framework integrates data from the three sub-components to evaluate the long-term effectiveness of the Reef 2050 Water Quality Improvement Plan.

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority leads management of this program with monitoring and reporting undertaken in partnership with a variety of organisations.
