We’re working to discover, enhance and sustain marine ecosystems and maximise the benefits from Australia’s marine territory.
The amount of microplastics on the seafloor is up to 35 times more than the estimated weight of plastic pollution on the ocean’s surface.
What does science during a lockdown look like? Our researchers are still checking in on their ocean animal friends during the pandemic.
White sharks are an elusive marine top predator. But researchers are improving their knowledge and busting shark myths with scientific facts.
Our research is being used for the Earth Challenge 2020 citizen science app to generate a global picture of how much plastic pollution there is.
Our Ningaloo Reef discoveries mean we know more than ever before. A partnership with BHP continues to build scientific knowledge on this diverse marine ecosystem.
Scientists have named a newly-described polychaete or bristle worm from Australia's deep abyss after CSIRO.
Omega-3 oils are traditionally sourced from fish. But now we have a less fishy alternative using marine micronutrients extracted from the ocean.
A new approach to culling crown-of-thorns starfish on the Great Barrier Reef has significantly reduced their numbers helping the coral return.
A record-breaking tuna first tagged in the Great Australian Bight in 1994 is giving scientists a rare glimpse into the life of these ocean marathon runners.
Only a small part of the ocean depths has been mapped in detail. So we must ask: “what great discoveries are still down there waiting to be uncovered?!”
Could converting old sea-worthy freighters into floating research arks help power future marine science? We chatted to our experts as part of World Oceans Day to find out.
Sequencing the DNA of marine microbes is enabling scientists to track changes to marine ecosystems to help with restoration efforts.
