Natural Sciences: Marine and Freshwater: Industry Resources

Industry Resources

Industry resources provides information on real world organisations, projects, regulations and tools that you can use when looking at real world scenarios, or working within the industry yourself. 

Use the following links and resources to explore the people, policies, and projects around Marine and Freshwater Biology:

Professional Associations will provide you with some local and international organisations who govern, work in, or associate with marine and freshwater biologists and scientists. If you are looking for information on industry issues and current projects in Marine and Freshwater Biology have a look at these organisations.

Regulation and Legislation are a selection of the current policies in place in Australia that govern how marine ecosystems and the environment as a whole are maintained. You can learn more about reading legislation at the Law Library Guide to Legislation.

Monitors and Databases are websites where you can find information and tracking of flora and fauna both locally and internationally. Use these to get current or real time data on marine species or marine ecosystems, and for encyclopedias of flora and fauna in Marine and Freshwater sciences.
