FRDC-DCCEE: preadapting a Tasmanian coastal ecosystem to ongoing climate change through reintroduction of a locally extinct species
University of Tasmania (UTAS)
1. Develop and promote a national framework to evaluate potential translocations of native marine species.
2. Determine the feasibility of reintroducing blue groper as a test case.
3. Design a monitoring and evaluation program to determine the effects of a trial re-introduction
4. Reach the critical decision point on whether to re-establish blue groper in Tasmania, or to take an alternative approach indicated by the research. Develop a proposal to support this outome.
