Confronting the challenges of tidal flat conservation: spatial patterns and human impacts in a marine protected area in southern NSW, Australia
Winberg, Pia C
One of the solutions that has been advocated to reduce anthropogenic impacts in the marine environment, is the concept of a global representative network of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The concept seeks to address both conservation and natural resource (eg. fisheries) management, and in Australia, the introduction of MPAs is guided by comprehensive, adequate and representative (CAR) princip ...
Evaluating Microdictyon umbilicatum bloom biomass as an agricultural compost conditioner for native and commercial plants
Winberg, Pia C. et al.
To date findings demonstrate that the Microdictyon umbilicatum bloom biomass can be effectively composted with terrestrial greenwaste to provide a soil conditioner with a useful macronutrient and trace element profile, and with no evidence of metal contamination of concern. As expected with an unwashed marine algal source, the sodium concentrations were elevated and dosing of % seaweed biomass ...

Globally, seaweed is the largest aquaculture production by volume at over eight million wet metric tonnes per annum (FAO 2003). Mostly this production is for traditional foods in Asia and the commodity markets of agar, alginates and carageenans. However, there is also untapped potential in smaller, high product value markets for nutritional and health applications. This is where Australia's be ...

Heath, Tom et al.
Floodgates and drainage networks, in addition to natural channels and tributaries, have been developed extensively throughout agricultural lands on the estuarine floodplains of NSW for drainage of agricultural fields and pastures. A characteristic and unfortunate consequence of draining and exposing previously waterlogged floodplains to oxygen, is the oxidation of reduced pyritic soils to prod ...
This report summarizes the latest research and industry trends through conference sessions that were of relevance to the potential seaweed industries in Australia. These sessions included algal culture, algal products (especially biofuels), health and nutrition and integrated multi-trophic aquaculture systems.
Seaweed Culture in Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture - Nutritional Benefits and Systems for Australia
Winberg, Pia C. et al.
This review contains a summary of the nutritional analysis and potential health benefits of eight seaweed genera, to support decisions on genera/species that could be cultivated in South East Australia, and integrated into aquaculture production systems. The health benefits associated with seaweeds are critical in identifying marketable products for a future seaweed industry. By identifying th ...
