The marine research program provides information on natural values and threatening processes within Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).  The program addresses management challenges and applied management questions. It also aims to improve knowledge of MPAs. This knowledge will continue to enhance Parks Victoria’s capacity to implement evidence-based management of the MPAs.

Since the program was initiated in 2003, 21 marine research projects have been completed resulting in a considerable improvement in knowledge about marine national parks and sanctuaries. A further 21 research projects are underway, with a number close to completion.  The marine research program is ongoing and Parks Victoria will continue to develop new research projects with our research partners that align with our research priorities.

Projects are guided by the research themes outlined in the Research Partners Panel program  and a Marine Research and Monitoring Strategy 2007-2012. Much of the research has been undertaken as part of the RPP program involving collaboration with various research institutions and includes projects such as:
