Managing the world’s wild fish stocks
CSIRO’s research helps ensure ecological modelling and stock assessments give fisheries and consumers across Australia clear information about good seafood choices.
Turning the tide against a deadly oyster virus
When the Australian oyster industry was struck by a potentially lethal virus in 2010, it had a strategic response in place, thanks to an earlier investment in genetic breeding research.
Forecasting effects of climate change on global fisheries
As the global population increases and climate changes continue to impact the world’s oceans, more pressure will be placed on fisheries to meet growing food security demands. Can science help the seafood industry adapt?
Adding up the human factors in traditional lobster fishing
Lifestyles of some 78 million people worldwide depend on small scale fisheries; that includes the communities of the Torres Strait and the suitably-named ornate rock lobster. Managing those small fisheries for future sustainability has been a long-term, and on-going, project.
What debris and the Indian Ocean told drift modellers about MH370 search area
The search for missing Flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean turned to oceanography to see what the science of surface drift modelling could suggest about the latitude of the splash site. The CSIRO final report has been delivered with more confidence than before of the likely search site - after testing on a real Boeing 777 plane part.
Global sustainability goals a challenge for Australia
New thinking is required if we are to achieve the future we signed up for with the UN sustainable development goals, a new study has found.
