Abstract

The wetland resources of the Queensland coastline have been mapped by the Resource Condition and Trend Unit, Fisheries Group, Department of Primary Industries Queensland. This process is being undertaken in order to provide a baseline dataset for Fish Habitat Area (FHA) declaration, Ramsar site nomination and continued monitoring of these important fish habitats. This report summarises the results of the mapping undertaken from Round Hill Head to Tin Can Inlet.

The study was undertaken in order to:
1. document and map the coastal wetland communities from Round Hill Head (24°S) to Tin Can Inlet (26°S);
2. document levels of existing disturbance to and protection of the wetlands;
3. examine existing recreational and commercial fisheries in the region; and
4. evaluate the conservation values of the areas investigated from the viewpoint of fisheries productivity and as habitat for important and/or threatened species.
