Sail-World.com : Gathering of leading marine scientists set for Townsville
Gathering of leading marine scientists set for Townsville


The current state and future prospects of Australia’s coral reefs will move into the spotlight at a gathering of leading marine scientists in Townsville on 10th-11th October, 2013.

The Coral Reefs in the 21st Century symposium will present the latest research, management and policy developments in coral reef systems in Australia, our region, and globally.

Hosted by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, the symposium will feature talks by more than 30 eminent coral reef and fish scientists on the future of these vital marine ecosystems and the industries and communities which depend on them.

A highlight will be a public forum hosted by TV personality Paul McDermott and featuring five of the nation’s stars of coral reef science at the Rydges Southbank, Townsville at 5.30pm on Thursday, October 10. This will be of vital interest to all whose livelihoods are linked to the GBR.

Key issues to be discussed at the Symposium include:

How marine protected areas help boost fisheries management
What governs coral health and how we can enhance it on the Great Barrier Reef?
Effects of ocean acidification on corals
Climate change in the oceans – the big picture
The surprising impact of man-made sound on coral fishes
Planning how to save the Coral Triangle
Role of consumers in protecting the world’s coral reefs.

The symposium and public forum are being held at the Rydges Southbank, Townsville on Thursday 10th October and Friday 11th October. Symposium Program details here and Public Forum here.
