Wilsons Promontory Surveys
The sessile flora and fauna of five sites on deep subtidal reefs within Wilsons Promontory Marine National Park (MNP) have been video surveyed by remote operated vehicle (ROV).
The surveys were carried out for comparison to the biota in Port Phillip Heads as part of the impact and recovery assessment for the Port Phillip Heads Channel Deepening Project.
Five sites within Wilsons Promontory MNP, West Kanowna Island, Roaring Meg East, Southeast Landing, Church Rocks and Waterloo Bay North were surveyed in 2002 and again 2009 with the exception of Kanowna Island.
The surveys were commissioned by Port of Melbourne and two more surveys are scheduled in 2013 and 2019.
