Brief description

Rocky reefs form an important habitat on the continental shelf and one subject to disproportionate fishing pressure given the high productivity of this habitat relative to adjacent sandy seabed. Despite this, little is known of the extent and nature of these systems beyond their value to the fishing industry. This project collated all known mapping data from government and industry (including data acquired during CERF and NERP Hubs) to provide an updated map of this key habitat around Australia. A geomorphological classification system is also being developed for these reefs, and associated cross-shelf habitats with the aim of it being accepted and adopted nationally, and it is being tested and refined for biological applicability.

This record describes the national habitat map data product generated from multiple datasets collated as part of NESP MBH Project D3. The individual habitat mapping datasets collected as part of the data collation process have also been published and are linked to this record.

Lineage

The data was contributed from several national and State sources including the Australian Hydrographic Service, Queensland, Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Tasmania, Western Australia and Northern Territory. The information was synthesised and the information collected to describe rocky reef location on the Australian Continental shelf is described by 4 tiers. Tier 1 are high resolution multibeam ‘local surveys’ generally carried out by the State stakeholders, Tier 2 are ‘regional surveys’ generally collected by CSIRO’s National Marine Facility. Tier 3 are national scale surveys from the Australian Hydrographic Service and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. Tier 4 is a ‘reef probability’ information source isolated from the Australian Hydrographic Service's (AHS) deep features S57 layer.
