Accidental Artificial Reefs

Join us to unveil diverse marine ecosystems, rare sightings of sharks and new fish behaviours around offshore structures.

This talk will explore the research into the unique ecosystems around offshore structures. The ocean off north-western Australia is a remote area of the world with a rich diversity of fish species. It is also rich in oil and gas reserves and contains many artificial structures used for their extraction. Normally, these are removed when they are no longer needed, but is this the most environmentally and financially sensible option?
