This study originated from a research program conducted by the South East Queensland Regional Water Quality Management Strategy, a multi-agency community/ industry/government partnership group. The first phase of the study produced a final report on ship-sourced pollution in the Brisbane River and Moreton Bay. Imminent changes to sewage discharge regulations for recreational vessels operating in Queensland’s coastal waters and concerns about nutrients derived from sewage emissions fuelled demand for a study aimed at identifying sewage signatures from recreational and tourist vessels.

This project principally examined the potential impact the turbulence created by the passage of cruise ships may have on fragile benthic marine biota and additional aspects such as potential wave wake erosion of channel banks. It is based on research undertaken to determine whether small, expedition-style cruise ships should be  permitted to enter past Port Davey and into Bathurst Channel within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Australia.
