North Queensland Bulk Ports have been undertaking Seagrass Monitoring in some of their Ports for over 20 years. Researchers at James Cook Universities’ TropWater have been measuring the abundance, density and diversity of seagrasses in waters from the Don River to Cape Upstart every 3 months for the last few years.

Some of the other research they have been doing includes measuring the amount of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR) available to the seagrass communities throughout the year, and collecting and counting seagrass seeds buried in the seabed in order to better understand the resilience of seagrass to large storm of cyclonic events.
