[Extract] This report provides an overview and synthesis of the key findings of research conducted under the Australian Government’s National Environmental Research Program (NERP) Tropical Ecosystems Hub relevant to water quality related research in the region. The NERP research theme water quality was comprised of 9 projects undertaken collaboratively by researchers from the Australian Institute of Marine Science, James Cook University, CSIRO and University of Queensland.

The intent of the NERP-funded water quality research was to assess the risks to biodiversity from current water quality in the inshore GBR and to assess the impacts of cumulative pressures on coastal biodiversity in the GBR. There has been a strong focus on priority pollutants, cumulative pressures on key ecosystems, identifying priority areas or actions for managers and monitoring and evaluation of long term historical water quality.

This report presents a synthesis of the highlights of the NERP Tropical Ecosystems Hub Water Quality and an overview of key project achievements within the theme. The report provides an introduction to water quality associated research carried out across the GBR and, a synthesis of key ecological project highlights for the regions (including status and trends), future pressures and threats, how research has informed policy and management, and future research priorities.

This report provides a synthesis of projects across all three themes in the NERP Tropical Ecosystems Hub, and is one of several such reports in a series of information products that summarise NERP research findings relevant to policy and management in tropical North Queensland.
