  • This data is primarily benthic invertebrate community information including species abundance & distribution collected by diver coring/grab. Spatial information is available for D'Entrecasteaux Channel, Huon River, North West Bay and Port Esperance sites. Associated physical chemical parameters (sediment grain size, redox, sulphide, depth) were also collected and, in most cases, includes spatial GPS references.

  • This data is primarily benthic invertebrate community information including species abundance & distribution collected by diver coring/grab. Spatial information is available for Huon Estuary and Tasman Peninsula (Nubeena) sites. Associated physical chemical parameters (sediment grain size, redox, sulphide, depth) were also collected and, in most cases, includes spatial GPS references.

  • Collected benthic community structure (species and abundance) and physical/chemical attributes (including sediment grain size, redox, sulphide and depth) for a large number of locations in the Huon and Derwent estuaries of south east Tasmania. Data was collected using van veen grab, divers where necessary or core samples. All locations include heavy metal data and site information. Most data was collected with spatial references (GPS).

  • A comparison was made of sediments and associated macrobenthos at sites sampled within 42 fish farm leases distributed across Tasmania. Several key biotic and abiotic metrics recommended in previous studies for assessing environmental impacts of fish farm waste were investigated.
