  • Luciana Ferreira (Australian Institute of Marine Science) - Exposure of marine megafauna to industry and other anthropogenic threats in the North-west
  • Fabrice Jaine (Sydney Institute of Marine Science, Integrated Marine Observing System - Animal Tracking Facility) - The Continental IMOS Acoustic Network
  • Paul Thomson (University of Western Australia) - Whale shark interactions with oil platforms
  • Clive McMahon (Sydney Institute of Marine Science, Integrated Marine Observing System - Animal Tracking Facility) - Animals as Oceanographers, data delivery and accessibility

Panel Discussion with Panel Chair – Luke Smith (University of Western Australia) and Rob Harcourt (Macquarie University, Integrated Marine Observing System - Animal Tracking Facility)

Scientific gaps – how do we support and manage industry to ensure these gaps are not serious impediments

  1. Good quantitative understanding of spatial use in a timely fashion – where are the actual interactions?
  2. How individual species respond to stressors such as noise, debris, habitat loss?
  3. How do adverse impacts on individuals' feedback to populations?
