Year Started: 

This project will increase knowledge and understanding of likely climate change and adaptation measures open to local communities. It will support a case study for Australia in adaptive management that cross-correlates regional needs with Australia-wide management policies. Key climate change information will be synthesised, analysed and adapted for marine biodiversity and fisheries businesses, and extension and knowledge sharing activities tailored for regional needs.

This project is managed by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation. For more information on the project and final report availability, please visit
