AIMS Long-term Monitoring Program: Crown-of-thorns starfish and benthos Manta Tow Data (Great Barrier Reef)

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Jul 24, 2020 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

64 'key' reefs in 11 sectors of the Great Barrier Reef (Cape Grenville, Princess Charlotte Bay, Cooktown/Lizard Island, Cairns, Innisfail, Townsville, Cape Upstart, Whitsunday, Pompey Complex, Swain and Capricorn Bunker) are annually surveyed for crown-of-thorns starfish using the manta tow technique. An additional 117 reefs from the sectors (excluding the Whitsunday, Swain and Capricorn-Bunker sectors) are scheduled for survey every third year ('cycle' reefs).

This data is a subset for the NERP TE project. The full dataset is described at https://apps.aims.gov.au/metadata/view/5bb9a340-4ade-11dc-8f56-00008a07204e
