Status Reports - Long term monitoring of the Great Barrier Reef


The AIMS Long term Monitoring Pogrom is designed to provide information population trends in key grounds of marine organisms (e.g. crown-of-thorns starfish, corals and reef fishes) on appropriate special scales across the breadth and width of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The Status Reports below summarised the results of monitoring to date for individual reefs, for latitudinal sectors and for the Great Barrier Reef overall. They have been superseded by web reporting.
