Brief description

Towed Video transects + Digital Stills \n Stereo BRUVS \n CTD \n Multibeam \n Sediment Samples\n RV Solander completed a broad-scale multibeam survey of the Groote Eylandt Indigenous Protection Aarea (IPA) covering as much of the IPA from the 15m isobath to the nominated Anindilyakwa Land Council (ALC) IPA boundary for sea country as possible, based on an approximately 1.2km grid. In addition running towed video transects of ~1.5km length for benthic communities and deploying stereo BRUVs units to assess fish diversity and abundance in a subset of the area surveyed was completed. Surface sediments were collected to establish baseline/background environmental conditions for metals and other selected contaminants.\n The project comprises seven different components across several years that together will provide the data required to produce benthic habitat maps of the Groote Eylandt declared IPA.

Lineage

This forms one component of the project that combines indigenous knowledge and scientific surveys to assess habitats and biodiversity of the Groote Island Indigenous Protected Area (IPA), and provide a baseline for environmental health of the IPA. Each component was completed through collaborations between the AIMS and ALC Staff and Rangers.\n
