Marine environments of the Gold Coast: Out with the old, in with the new

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Extract:
The marine environments of the Gold Coast comprise one of the most highly modified and heavily utilised waterways in Australia. Chapters 2 and 3 discussed changes in the historic land use patterns. Just what has this meant to the marine environments of the Gold Coast? In this chapter the contemporary marine habitats of the Gold Coast are described, along with the fauna that those habitats support. We talk about how the current status of the habitats compares with various historical points in time, and the role of novel habitats. Given the importance of recreational fishing to both tourists to and residents of the Gold Coast, knowledge of the condition and trends of marine habitats is of significance.
