Marine imagery and annotation data on fish and shark assemblages provide powerful biodiversity reporting and impactful science communication and this project will improve discoverability, data analytics and reporting workflows for these powerful data assets.
This data has been used to illustrate climate change impacts, reveal environmental change within marine parks and indicate pathways to maximise bio-economic management globally.
This is an ARDC Australian Data Partnerships project.
Who is this project for?
- Research organisations
- Government agencies
What does this project enable?
This project will ensure the future growth of the Australian BRUV synthesis data asset, identified as a critical component for the sustained monitoring of Commonwealth, State and Territory Marine Park or Reserve networks, where stereo-BRUVs are a key tool for the non-destructive monitoring of fish assemblages across a range of water depths.
