Characterising benthic pelagic interactions in Macquarie Harbour - organic matter processing in sediments and the importance for nutrient dynamics

Project No: FRDC 2012/047 

The objective of this project was to examine the relationship between nutrient flux rates, nutrient pathways and also sediment and water variables in Macquarie Harbour in relation to salmon fish farming to help create an ecologically sustainable fish farming practice. The information and data obtained from this project was used to calibrate existing water column and sediment modelling for Macquarie Harbour, which could be used as a reference to develop a better management tool to further sustain the environmental health of the harbour.
