Seagrass Strategic Review and Development of an R&D Plan was commissioned by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC). It reflects a shift from viewing fished species or even fisheries habitats as separate, unconnected entities to viewing them as components of larger ecosystems, and it seeks to develop a comprehensive, ecosystem-based management plan. Five principal chapters assess: gaps in existing knowledge of seagrass ecosystems; knowledge of links between seagrass and fisheries; the state of the art in rehabilitation and restoration of damaged seagrass beds; monitoring and assessment of seagrass; and seagrass and fisheries management. A final chapter develops a Research and Development Plan to guide FRDC's future investment in the context of FRDC's Ecosystem Protection Program and its interaction with other agencies which have responsibilities in marine habitat management.
