Inshore

The inshore marine health of the Wet Tropics is assessed on water quality, coral and seagrass for 2014/15. Scores and grades are provided where data is available, with further development required for the fish index.

There are four inshore marine reporting zones, North, Central, South, and Palm Island. From the available data overall grades are provided, with the Central zone good and the North, South and Palm Island zones moderate. The North and South zones are the only two inshore marine zones that have seagrass monitored.
