ROB destructive survey – QLD

February 26 @ 8:30 am - February 28 @ 2:00 pm AEST

Join OzFish in a unique collaboration with Griffith University to deconstruct and survey Robust Oyster Baskets (ROB).

There are three sessions to choose from, running from the 26th to the 28th of February. The survey aims to uncover the diverse marine life residing on both intertidal and subtidal ROBs, providing valuable insights into the ecosystems they support. 

Participants will be actively involved in collecting and dissecting three subtidal and three intertidal ROBs, meticulously counting and documenting the various organisms inhabiting these structures. Volunteers are crucial to the success of this survey. You will work alongside Griffith University staff and students, gaining hands-on experience in marine biology research. 

Training sessions will be provided to equip participants with the necessary skills and knowledge for the survey. The results will be compiled and published, shedding light on the rich biodiversity associated with ROBs. This research contributes to our understanding of marine ecosystems and their inhabitants.

Please wear a long-sleeved shirt, long pants, sturdy shoes, and a hat. This attire ensures your safety and comfort during the survey. Don’t forget to bring a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day.  

Morning tea and lunch will be provided, offering an opportunity for networking and sharing experiences with fellow participants and experts. 

Registration is essential. We hope to see you there!
