The purpose of this document is to review the existing scientific understanding, in an international context, of the temperate reef habitats in Victoria, particularly in Port Phillip Bay. A variety of research has been conducted on intertidal, subtidal, deep subtidal and canyon reefs in Victoria both within Port Phillip Bay and along the Victorian coast.

While some clear differences in species distributions and assemblage structure have been identified from eastern to western Victoria, the majority of information on reefs in Victoria provides only a "snapshot" at one particular place or time of year. Examination of temporal and spatial variation in the structure of assemblages on different reef types, and more basic information on which species occur and their basic ecology and behaviour are lacking, especially for deep and canyon reefs.
