Research being undertaken at AIMS during GBR spawning was part of a Reef Recovery program which involves freezing and banking coral sperm, in a bid to safeguard at-risk species and their genetic diversity.
The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) has conducted the first real-world seismic experiment to determine the effects of marine noise on fish and pearl oysters.
Microplastics and other man-made fibres have been found in a popular fish species on the Great Barrier Reef.
Researchers at the Australian Institute of Marine Science have developed a cost effective method for detecting DNA of the coral-eating crown-of-thorns starfish.
AIMS researchers have broken new ground while trialling aerial and underwater robots at sea, which would allow greater monitoring of the Great Barrier Reef.
Researchers are looking to harness the Great Barrier Reef’s massive size, to help it resist and recover from the impacts of climate change.
A new report, the Northern Territory Marine Science End User Needs Analysis, has put the marine science needs of the Territory’s stakeholders under scrutiny to produce a clearer understanding of their shared needs for the region.
Experts from the Australian Institute of Marine Science and the Australian Department of Defence Science and Technology division are working together to find answers to a problem affecting all marine industries.
Degraded coral reefs are far quieter than five years ago, and no longer sound like suitable habitat to young fish searching for a place to live and breed, according to the latest research.
Researchers are a step closer to understanding how coral reefs re-seed themselves and adapt to growing environmental threats.
