South-west Bioregional Profile cover

About this document

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 South-west Marine Region and do not necessarily reflect the views of the government or indicate its commitment to a particular course of action.

The Bioregional Profile is the first step in the marine bioregional planning process.

The Profile describes the geomorphology, oceanography and ecology of the Region, and identifies its conservation values.

The Profile also explains how new marine reserves will be identified and it provides information about the human activities in the region.
