NSW Ports and University of Wollongong partner to protect marine life near ports


The University of Wollongong announced a partnership between the University of Wollongong (UOW) and NSW Ports was initiated to explore options for ecosystem-based management of seafloor environments, which has the potential to benefit marine life not only in the waters off Port Kembla but at ports around Australia and around the globe.

The partnership builds on an existing collaboration between UOW and the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) to map sections of seafloor near ocean-going vessel anchorages, while gathering data as part of OEH’s Seabed NSW project, announced earlier this year.
