Baseline Portland Biological Survey, April-May 1996
Entry ID: CSIRO_portland

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains the result of a biological baseline survey of
the port region of Portland, Victoria, carried out in April-May 1996
by CSIRO Marine Research Centre for Research on Introduced Marine
Pests (CRIMP). Collection methods employed include pylon scrapings,
sediment cores, crab traps, plankton nets, and qualitative visual
inspection and photographs (both still and video). Voucher specimens
have been incorporated into collections of the Museum of Victoria and
CMR, Hobart. Taxonomic groups surveyed include marine invertebrates,
fishes, phytoplankton, macroalgae, and marine vegetation. This dataset
forms part of a series of Port Surveys conducted by CRIMP over the
period 1996 to present. This metadata record is sourced from 'MarLIN',
the CSIRO Marine Laboratories Information Network. Additional
information for this dataset may be available via the original MarLIN
metadata entry (see on-line links).
