Everyone can help protect our oceans from marine pests.
Join our Marine Biosecurity Australia network. It brings together:
- members of the public.
They work together to improve our marine pest biosecurity.
To get involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Purpose of the network
Our network will:
- improve partnerships and collaboration on marine biosecurity
- enable us to better understand, communicate and manage marine pest risks
- coordinate nationally-significant research.
Current focus of the network.
Develop a marine biosecurity reference case for the offshore and petroleum industry
We are working to make marine biosecurity requirements clearer and more consistent:
- across jurisdictions
- for organisations and vessels operating in the offshore petroleum sector.
The network will be involved in this work.
How to conduct safe in-water cleaning
Australia has anti-fouling and in-water cleaning guidelines. These provide advice on best-practice approaches for:
- application, maintenance, and removal of anti-fouling coatings
- in-water cleaning of biofouling on vessels and movable structures.
The network will contribute to a review of the effectiveness and uptake of the guidelines.
Network of researchers
Marine Biosecurity Research Australia is a national network of government, university and industry researchers. They contribute to our knowledge of marine pest impacts and management.
Through Marine Biosecurity Research Australia we can:
- bring together researchers to identify research priorities
- encourage partnerships
- facilitate the exchange of ideas.
If you are undertaking research, we can help to identify:
- potential collaborators
- existing tools
- considerations that may increase the national significance of your research.
Get involved with Marine Biosecurity Research Australia. Email us at email@example.com.
We plan to expand network involvement to other marine biosecurity issues.
This will align with implementation of the MarinePestPlan 2018-2023.
