We’re working to discover, enhance and sustain marine ecosystems and maximise the benefits from Australia’s marine territory.
Could technology change the face of fishing? We asked our experts to reflect on one of our winning competition entries as part of this World Oceans Day series.
What goes ping and is mapping the seafloor? Matt Boyd takes us underwater with the discoveries found on RV Investigator with the machine that goes ping!
Could seaweed tyres be an effective substitute for synthetic rubber in tyres? Our experts weigh in on World Oceans Day.
To celebrate World Oceans Day, we asked for your creative ideas about the science and technology needed to ensure healthy and sustainable future oceans.
Our scientists continue their important work safeguarding human and animal health from disease, while we strive for a COVID-19 vaccine.
Ocean technology is helping us to answer the question of ‘what exactly is out there?’ And shine a light on unexplored ecosystems and species. But how did we arrive here?
Scientists have discovered the world’s largest number of new species of carnivorous sponges from a deep-sea expedition on board RV Investigator.
Our scientists, together with Project Aware and Ocean Conservancy, have conducted the largest global survey of land and marine debris.
With more than 500 shark species globally, new research suggests using shark species names could help manage shark conservation.
Our marine biologists are using environmental DNA (eDNA), fragments of DNA shed by fish into the marine environment, to detect tropical fish species in Australia.
Biodiversity is often highest in places with human activity. The fishing industry has shown we can often have it both ways: maintain important livelihoods while protecting precious marine life.
The World Meteorological Organisation today published a definitive climate report card showing concentrations of greenhouse gases continue to rise, and the last five years were the warmest on record.
