Ocean Tracks–dive in!
Dive with sharks and fish in lifelike animations and follow their paths using interactive maps based on CSIRO’s marine-tagging research.
Waves: their role in ocean ecosystems
Scientists are researching the role of waves in ecosystem processes in the coastal waters of Western Australia. Understanding these processes has economic, social and environmental benefits and is vital to the effective management of coastal waters.

Seeing under the ocean with robotic Argo floats
See how a world-wide array of robotic floats is providing scientists with data about the ocean and helping them to understand the ocean’s role in climate, and to better forecast climate and ocean conditions. CSIRO is providing a valuable contribution to this project. (2:00)
Sounding out life in the ocean
Commercial fishers are helping marine scientists to map and monitor food supplies available to top order predators in the oceans around Australia.
Scientists offer new take on selective fishing
A new, less selective approach to commercial fishing is needed to ensure the ongoing productivity of marine ecosystems and to maintain biodiversity, according to a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
Warming Indian Ocean – impacts to be discussed
The impacts of a warming Indian Ocean on Western Australia’s climate, environment and fisheries will be discussed today in Perth by scientists at a Western Australian Marine Science Institution (WAMSI) symposium.
Anglers urged to share tales of longtail tuna
Coastal anglers are being encouraged to help ensure the long-term sustainability of Australia’s newest ‘recreational only’ species, the longtail tuna, by reporting catches using a new online system.
