Resource Assessment of the Tidal Wetland Vegetation of Western Cape York Peninsula, North Queensland, Report to Ocean Rescue 2000

Danaher, K. and Stevens, T. (1995) Resource Assessment of the Tidal Wetland Vegetation of Western Cape York Peninsula, North Queensland, Report to Ocean Rescue 2000. Project Report. OR2000. Department of Primary Industries, Brisbane, Queensland.



A project to allow the resource assessment of tidal wetland vegetation of western Cape York Peninsula, in north Queensland, was undertaken as part of the longterm assessment of the coastal fisheries resources of Queensland. The project incorporated a littoral invertebrate fauna component. Extending from May 1993 to December 1994, fieldwork was undertaken in May 1993, November 1993 and April 1994.

The aims of this project were to:
• obtain baseline information on the distribution of marine plants of western Cape York Peninsula;
• commence a preliminary assessment of the littoral invertebrate fauna and their habitat requirements with a view to extending knowledge of their biogeographic affinities;
• perform biogeographic classification of the tidal wetlands at a meso and local scale for marine conservation planning;
• evaluate the conservation values of the areas investigated from the viewpoint of fisheries productivity and as habitat for important/threatened species.
