Uptake of aquaculture waste by keystone reef species

Using a lipid biomarker approach, this project aims to determine whether aquaculture waste supplements the diet of key mobile invertebrate species (abalone, Haliotis rubra; sea urchins, Heliocidaris erythrogramma; and benthic shrimp, Palaemon intermedius) within reef ecosystems in south-east Tasmania.
