Australian Marine Parks

The National Marine Science Committee is an advisory body focused on promoting the nexus between high quality marine science and growth of Australia’s blue economy.

The committee helps coordinate information sharing between:

  • research institutions
  • universities
  • Australian Government departments
  • state/territory governments
  • the broader Australian marine science community.

It is a means by which this interdisciplinary, geographically dispersed community comes together to provide scientifically-robust, user-relevant advice on marine issues of national significance to Australia.

The Committee’s National Marine Science Plan 2015–2025 includes recommendations relevant to Australian marine parks.

Parks Australia engages with the National Marine Science Committee’s ongoing work program by attending meetings to assist with implementing the plan and other matters.
