Abstract

In recent years there has been concern that catchment-derived nutrients and sediments discharged by rivers into the lagoon of the Great Barrier Reef are having a deleterious impact on near-shore reef ecosystems. On average, the Fitzroy River delivers the second largest quantity of these materials to the lagoon after the Burdekin River. The Fitzroy Agricultural Contaminants Project (AC), which is a Coastal CRC project, included amongst its aims the development of an understanding of the fate and impact of these agricultural contaminants (nutrients and sediments) within the Fitzroy Estuary-Keppel Bay system.
