About this site

This site came about through the collaboration of many people

IMAS Key Contact

Truly one of a kind, the fabulous Flora Bush is the key person that kept this project on track. By facilitating relevant information between Catriona McLeod, Camille White and John Anderson at Forte Web Design, she was able to lock in the key aspects required by the IMAS business owners and keep the development of this site moving along. She accumulated, sorted and wrote great volumes of information all while keeping a good sense of humour (and being 8 months pregnant!).


Olivia Johnson
Most of the amazing photographs used on our site were taken and curated by Olivia Johnson. Olivia is our underwater photography expert and a key member of our rocky reef and seagrass research team. Olivia can be contacted at Olivia.Johnson@utas.edu.au if you wish to talk to her about using some of her images. You can also contact her if you have any questions about the interactions between salmon farming and seagrass ecosystems.
