Fish poo could hold the answer to tackling large numbers of crown-of-thorns starfish which are eating the Great Barrier Reef.
AIMS and our collaborators are leading the way in understanding more about the feeding habits of sharks from their skin tissue.
Tiny sacs of white eggs found in bleached coral reefs between Townsville and Cairns are raising new hope for some of the worst affected parts of the Great Barrier Reef.
Ms Anna Matysek has been appointed as a member of the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) Council for a five-year term from June 2017.
The AIMS Long-term Monitoring Program has released an update on the condition of the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) based on survey data gathered across the entire GBR over the last 32 years.
Australia's north-west oceanic shoals - natural banks that rise from the seabed, in this case from depths of 200 m up to within 15─50 m of the surface - were found to support the highest fish diversity reported globally for deeper middle light level coral...
Research published today in Nature rigorously documents the 2016 mass bleaching on reefs of Australia’s west and east coasts and confirms the link with unusually warm water temperatures.
Scientists from the Western Australia Marine Science Institute (WAMSI) have discovered a new bioindicator to assist with monitoring sediment-related stress in corals - mucus.
