Abstract

Current policy and management for marine water quality in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) focusses on sediment, nutrients and PSII herbicides. While other so-called emerging contaminants are known to be present in the marine environment, little is known about their sources, role and fate in the GBR and Torres Strait (TS) regions. Changes in agricultural practices and land uses, increasing coastal development including urban and industrial land uses and ports, and associated projected increases in shipping traffic are likely to result in new contaminants being released into marine ecosystems in the near future. This project evaluates the risks of these emerging contaminants to GBR and TS marine ecosystems, and compares these risks to those identified for the current pollutants of concern.
