Dataset: Reef Gardens in Torres Strait - Community based management in action 2012


This project aimed to gather and synthesize information and modelling tools, to assist traditional owners in identifying suitable locations, areas and stocking rates for reef gardens in Torres Strait, for valuable hand collectable species including sandfish (H. scabra), black teatfish (H. whitmaei) and trochus (T. niloticus). This is potentially an important component in developing adaptive co-management harvest strategies in Torres Strait.

Data from previous surveys were used to illustrate potential reef garden sites. No new spatial data were generated during this project.
