Abstract

[Extract] The intent of this project was to conduct a workshop with key researchers and stakeholders to establish the future research framework for NESP investment into better understanding of box-jellyfishes presence and risk in the Great Barrier Reef. This was to include, defining the scope of work required to: identify how species of Irukandji and stingers respond to changing water quality conditions, make predictions of box-jellyfishes presence based on environmental conditions, determine ecological impacts and recommend innovative management options. We proposed to engage with stakeholders to discuss stakeholder concerns, determine the scientific information already available, determine research gaps to be filled and develop a framework to guide future NESP research to meet end-user needs.
