We’re working to discover, enhance and sustain marine ecosystems and maximise the benefits from Australia’s marine territory.
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. Updated 31 August , 2022
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.
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.
