Queensland Coastal Wetland Resource Investigation of the Bowen Region: Cape Upstart to Gloucester Island

Bruinsma, C., Danaher, K., Treloar, T. and Sheppard, R. (1999) Queensland Coastal Wetland Resource Investigation of the Bowen Region: Cape Upstart to Gloucester Island. Project Report. Fisheries Group, Department of Primary Industries, Brisbane, Queensland.



The wetland resources of the Queensland coastline have been mapped as a baseline dataset for Marine Protected Area investigation and particularly 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 in the Bowen region from the East Coast of Cape Upstart (Abbot Bay) to Gloucester Island (encompassing Edgecumbe Bay).

The study was undertaken in order to:
1. document and map the coastal wetland communities within the Bowen region;
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 significance of the coastal wetlands in the region.
