Are we humans alone in our love of mind-altering substances? Of course not! There are plenty of party animals in the animal kingdom.
An international research team has just returned from a voyage of deep sea discovery in Australia’s eastern abyss. Check out the mysterious creatures they found in the deepest, darkest chasms of the ocean.
They provide us with oxygen, they go with the flow and chances are you’ve probably swallowed some of them at the beach. This is our tribute to the humble plankton.
We’re taking on the world’s largest marine pollution survey, working with countries and using science to reduce the amount of litter entering our oceans.
Have you got questions about jellyfish? We’ve got answers (and some good tips to help you avoid the sting)!
Australia and China have joined forces to establish the first research centre with a focus on the southern hemisphere oceans. The Centre for Southern Hemisphere Oceans Research will tackle the challenge of improving our understanding of the southern oceans and how they influence regional and global climate.
Investigator is on a world-first voyage to uncover life in the abyss, a deep, dark and largely unexplored world of jelly and fangs!
The litters of some species of sharks may share multiple fathers. We studied how frequently this occurs in two species of sharks caught by fisheries in Papua New Guinea and are using the information to help identify populations at risk of decline.
Most farmed prawns are fed wild-harvest fishmeal, contributing to strain on global fish stocks. Our scientists have created a plant-based solution that also makes the prawns healthier and grow on average 20–30 per cent faster.
