Marine integrated monitoring program

Published 28 February 2023

The marine integrated monitoring program (monitoring program) guide:

  1. monitoring of marine habitats and biodiversity and how the community benefits from the marine estate
  2. assessment of the effectiveness of the Marine Estate Management Strategy (the Strategy) in reducing priority threats and risks
  3. research to fill key knowledge gaps identified in the Statewide Threat and Risk Assessment.

An integrated monitoring and evaluation framework (Framework) has been developed to assess the effectiveness of the Strategy in reducing priority threats and risks (point 2 above). A technical document (PDF, 6924.29 KB) as well as a short summary (PDF, 1848.48 KB) explaining the key points are available. This Framework was developed in collaboration with Marine Estate Management Authority agencies and the Marine Estate Expert Knowledge Panel.

The information gathered and reported through this Framework will be available on the marine estate website as it becomes available. Findings of the first evaluation completed in 2021 are also now available.
