1. Provide the information to foster an improved understanding of the implications of climate change on fisheries stocks, fishing effort and marine biodiversity, thereby providing input into Australian and state based fisheries management and policy.
2. Building on the climate adaptation imperatives and carbon sequestration opportunities of inshore habitat and the opportunities of “Direct Action”, foster works and activities that will ensure increased inshore productivity for professional, recreational and indigenous fishers.
3. Articulate the benefits of resourcing R&
D for the key knowledge gaps across climate adaptation, carbon sequestration and inshore fisheries habitat and seek for FRDC co-investment partnership arrangements with key Australian Government agencies.
4. Review and evaluate to ensure a high standard of all draft milestone and draft final reports, remaining projects.
