Centre for Sustainable Use of Coasts and Catchments
The Centre for Sustainable Use of Coasts and Catchments undertakes research to support the sustainable use and conservation of the living resources and environments of coasts and catchments, the preservation of their related social values, and the development of innovative techniques, management and conservation strategies. The Centre has established research programmes involving staff, postgraduate and honours students, and research associates, with particular emphasis on marine conservation and sustainable use of fishery resources, indicators of estuarine health, coastal lagoon water quality and planktonic processes, impacts of floodgates on fish and invertebrates, riparian and rainforest vegetation ecology, the ecological impacts of ocean outfalls, and social sustainability. Research is also continuing, in collaboration with international donor agencies, in South Asia and the Middle East.
