Tim Tan Heads Off

The staff at Australian Marine Ecology are sad to say farewell to Timothy Tan, who is leaving the company to take up doctoral studies at the Department of Zoology at the University of Melbourne. 


Commercial Dive Training with Professional Diving Services

After three weeks of class work, exams, emergency drills and practical assessments, Australian Marine Ecology is proud to boast that four of our divers are newly recognised as Part 1 (SCUBA to 30 m) restricted commercial divers by the Australian Diver Accreditation Scheme.


Update on Blue Whale Acoustic Tracking Project

Half a century ago humanity pushed the Antarctic blue whale population perilously close to extinction. Our best information suggests that a third of a million blue whales were killed during the industrial whaling era. Recent modelling suggests the current population of Antarctic blue whales is still less than 5% of its original size. In order to build an accurate understanding of the status of Antarctic blue whales today, a collaborative approach involving researchers from ten nations will embark on a three year research project scheduled for the 2013 – 2016 Antarctic summer seasons.


Joining the medical research fold


Australian Marine Ecology is proud to become a donor with the Folding@Home project, run by the Pande laboratory at Stanford University. The lab is studying protein folding during its formation and related diseases, including amyloidosis, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and cancers.


Estuary habitat mapping for Monash University

"You're gonna need a smaller boat"

Matt Edmunds

Australian Marine Ecology was recently invited by the Monash University Water Studies Centre to do some estuary habitat mapping. The work contributes to nutrient dynamics research programs headed by Dr Ryan Woodland and Dr Perran Cook. We were commissioned to map the bathymetry and habitat types, particularly macrophytes, in eight estuaries across Victoria, from the Moyne estuary in the west (Port Fairy) to Wingan Inlet (Cann River) in the east.
