Abstract

Northern Australia is currently the focus of substantial economic development, which also has the potential to impact biodiversity and cultural values. The Northern Seascape scoping project (NESP Marine Biodiversity Hub Project A12 Phase 1) assessed the state of knowledge of Commonwealth Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC)-listed Threatened and Migratory marine species, and pressures, Indigenous priorities, coastal habitats, and fisheries bycatch in relation to them across the North Marine Bioregion. The focus was at a multiple taxa level, including elasmobranchs (sharks and rays), shorebirds, marine turtles, Dugong, and cetaceans. The project scoped the research needs and directions for a broad Northern Seascapes project for the years 2018–2020.
