Towards pervasive monitoring of marine species

March 1st, 2019

Brano Kusy’s recently gave a talk at the Great Barrier Reef Restoration Symposium in Cairns in July 2018. This international Symposium brought together restoration practitioners, scientists, engineers, environmental managers, NGOs and industry partners to share experiences, insights and ideas about what works, what doesn’t, and what more we need to know to help the Great Barrier Reef.

Brano presented CSIRO’s work on sensorizing coastal environments to improve our understanding of marine species, to quantify industrial/climate impacts on the species, and to explore the possibility of using animal species as indicators of difficult-to-measure phenomena, such as pollution or illegal fishing.

This work was done in collaboration between CSIRO Data61, CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere, AIMS, and Deakin university researchers and was supported and sponsored by CSIRO’s Active Integrated Matter Future Science Platform.
