Kimberley Benthic Habitat Survey - Benthic Habitat Distribution Maps

Four locations along the Kimberley coast were video and depth surveyed to describe the substratum type, biohabitat type and the bathymetry of the seabed. Video and depth data was collected between 9 - 29 June 2008 from the vicinity of Gourdon Bay, Quondong – Coulomb Point, Perpendicular Head and Packer Island.

Video footage was analysed to obtain habitat classification data to generate distribution maps of substrate and biohabitat types. These maps were used by the Northern Development Taskforce as part of a selection process to rank the suitability of a range of locations for a proposed common-user liquefied natural gas hub precinct.
