Macquarie Harbour dissolved oxygen assessment

Dissolved oxygen within the water column is an important variable in Macquarie Harbour. This project was set up to collate and check EPA and industry monitoring data; to analyse historical time series of bottom water DO, salinity and temperature; to assist with analysis of factors related to bottom water DO including river flow, along- and across harbour wind stress, daily tidal range, fish biomass, water temperature etc. Using existing benthic flux information and carbon inputs from farming the project also estimated the contribution of fish farming and non-aquaculture sources to oxygen consumption in the harbour.
