CSIRO Survey TT200801 - ROV Jason cruise tn228: South and East of Tasmania

Latest version published by CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere on Sep 13, 2018 CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere

The TT 01/2008 survey was a follow up survey to the SS 01/2008 to sample beds of high quality live, sub-fossil and fossil corals off SE Tasmania, and to document and sample the communities in depths up to 4000 m using the deep-diving Remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Jason. 16 dives were completed in or close to areas in the South-east Commonwealth Marine Reserves; the ROV Jason spent almost 400 hours underwater, took over 36000 photographs and 300 hours of video of the deep-reef, and collected over 1000 biological specimens, most new to science.

The focus of the survey was collection of fossil corals (Desmophyllum sp.), description of habitats at depth between 700 and 4000 m depth and establishing two long-term monitoring sites in the Huon CMR (settlement plates). It explored and sampled on the near vertical slice in the earth's crust, known as the Tasman Fracture Zone, which drops from approximately 2000 metres to over 4000 metres. Jason was used to collect video, high definition still images (mosaiced images) and selective samples of fossil corals and invertebrate fauna.

Project Data

The Huon and Tasman Fracture Commonwealth Marine Reserves (CMRs) were declared in 2007 and form part of the National Representative System of Marine Protected Areas. Relatively little is known about the benthic biodiversity in these reserves, although another current project provides baselines data from a depth range of 100 to 1800 m based on surveys undertaken in 2006 and 2007. For depths beyond 1800 m, however, which make up more than 90% of the CMR area, almost nothing is known about benthic biodiversity or conservation values.
