Bioregional profile cover

About the profile

The East Bioregional Profile is the starting point for developing a Marine Bioregional Plan.

The Profile focuses on the natural assets of the East Marine Region, describes its ecological characteristics, outlines its conservation values and explains how new marine reserves will be identified.

Additionally, it provides a broad description of the human activities that take place in the region.

The Bioregional Profile summarises information detailed in a number of reports produced through the marine bioregional planning process.

These reports have been made available to assist in better understanding the East Marine Region and do not necessarily reflect the views of the government or indicate a commitment to a particular course of action.
