Event description
Join us to unveil diverse marine ecosystems, rare sightings of sharks and new fish behaviours around offshore structures.

About this Event

The ocean off north-western Australia is a remote area of the world with a rich diversity of fish species. It is also rich in oil and gas reserves and contains many artificial structures used for their extraction. Normally, these are removed when they are no longer needed, but is this the most environmentally and financially sensible option?

This talk will explore how scientists research the marine life around oil and gas structures and the importance of these unique ecosystems.

Todd is a Marine Scientist and Research Associate at The University of Western Australia. His current research focuses on how and why fish interact with oil and gas structures. His work helps inform decisions on the fate of these structures when they are no longer in use.
