Oceanic Shoals Marine Biodiversity Survey, Timor Sea (NERP Marine Biodiversity Hub, Theme 4, Project 1)

Surveys were carried out in targeted shallow seabed environments within the proposed Oceanic Shoals Commonwealth Marine Reserve (CMR) in the Timor Sea. The survey concentrated on shelf habitats (< 200m) of the western part of the Oceanic Shoals CMR and included potential biodiversity hotspots such as pinnacles, banks and shoals.
