More than 60 new species have been discovered in the Great Australian Bight as part of one of the largest whole-of-ecosystem studies undertaken in Australian waters. The new discoveries were made during the initial three years of the Great Australian Bight Research Program.
The $20 million program is a collaboration between BP, CSIRO, the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), the University of Adelaide, and Flinders University. The four-year program aims to provide a whole-of-system understanding of the environmental, economic and social values of the region.
