A detailed resurvey of rocky reef fishes, large mobile invertebrates and seaweeds
at 136 sites around the entire Tasmanian coastline was conducted during
2006/2007, to assess the current condition of reef communities and determine
whether there have been any substantial changes to inshore marine biota since
1994. The results of analysis of floral and faunal community changes during the
period between surveys and values of key biological indicators, developed
specifically for Tasmanian reef communities, are presented in this report.
