Former "beloved member" Bill Molesworth introduced Katrina Kreivins of the GBBR (see title).
Katrina spoke extensively and knowledgeably about the logistics and parameters of what the Reserve includes in terms of scope of analysis and the physical area. The main thrust of the presentation is that we are loosing bio-diversity and overall  water populations due to an overall reduction in phosphates in off-shore waters affecting the lower parts of the food web and thus the upper parts too. Overall since 2003 there has been a 98% disappearance of zoo-plankton and other micro nutrients that support them. This affects the next level up, that being the prey fish and thus the predator fish (sport and food source fish). 
Please check out and and you will be surprised and engaged.
