New South Wales boasts many wonderful ocean pools, thanks to a combination of climate, geology, culture and prosperity. Despite concerns about costs, economic and health benefits far outweigh these.
Identifying and overcoming barriers to equitable participation in social and economic life can improve the well-being of coastal communities.
How did whales that feed on tiny prey evolve into the largest creatures on Earth? And why don't they get even bigger?
Climate change is causing oceans to become warmer and more acidic and to lose oxygen. Indonesian waters are not immune to these impacts.
Shark fisheries in Indonesia are an important economic resource in several areas. Hence, stronger regulations are needed to prevent declines in shark population.
Although less well known than its cousins, coral reefs and mangroves, seagrass plays a crucial role in climate change mitigation.
Fish may not have eyelids to close, but they sleep – and perhaps even dream.
These small shrimp-like creatures are more than just whale food.
Indonesia is struggling to keep its waste from the oceans. The government has announced ambitious plan to curb plastic waste. However, lack of research to support the policy.
In some places, the ocean is almost 7 miles deep. Scientists exploring the ocean floor have found strange sea creatures, bizarre geologic formations and records of Earth's history.
New research shows that warming by more than 2°C could be a tipping point for Antarctica's ice sheets, resulting in widespread meltdown and changes to the world's shorelines for centuries to come.
Our study found that some individuals who previously participated in destructive fishing practices can transform into inspiring leaders and influence others to protect coral reefs.
We don't know for sure which one is smarter, because not everyone agrees on what "intelligence" means. Both have their own special behaviours and skills and we can't say who is more intelligent.
More than 600 experts will spend the next year drifting in Arctic waters to gain a better understanding of how climate change is affecting the region and how it can be fought.
If nothing is done now, seas could rise a metre by 2100, and four metres by 2300.
A new Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report makes clear human-induced climate change threatens the health and function of the ocean and cryosphere - the frozen regions of the Earth.
The UN body responsible for communicating the science of climate breakdown has released its long-awaited report on how we're changing our ice and oceans. In a nutshell, the news isn't good.
Levels of microplastics in the ocean are rising. More study is needed to figure out how these microplastics affect the qualities and properties of sea ice, and what the potential impact may be.
Fish can't read maps, and their eggs and larvae drift across national boundaries. Recent research shows that local problems in one fishery can affect others across wide areas.
The eastern Arctic and sub-Arctic marine areas of Canada are changing rapidly under climate change.
