In this project, we are investigating translocation as an adaptation strategy to offset the
impacts of climate change on coastal ecosystems. Specifically, we are examining the
scientific, legal and social feasibilities of managed translocation of locally extinct top
predator species or likely future climate migrants, where this would benefit the receiving
ecosystem in terms of enhancing resilience to climate change. As a test case, we are
considering the managed translocation of the Eastern Blue Groper (EBG; Achoerodus viridis)
as a means of pre-adapting coastal reefs to ongoing warming of waters off eastern Tasmania.
