Mobile invertebrates on intertidal reefs

Port Phillip Bay: Mobile invertebrates have remained in good condition since 2003 in the bay’s Marine National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries only.

Western Port: Western Port has few reefs and limited data about them. There has been an observed loss in invertebrate diversity at Crawfish Rock due to high turbidity.

Other marine and coastal areas: Mobile invertebrates are in good condition in Marine National Parks and Marine Sanctuaries only. Data are insufficient on reefs outside those protected areas.

Region: 
Marine National Parks and Sanctuaries, Western Port, Other Marine and Coastal Areas
Measures: 
Census (count); total diversity of mobile invertebrates; extent of mobile invertebrates; patchiness or fragmentation (i.e. connectivity)
