dc.description.abstract Northern Australian tropical marine environments are hotspots for biodiversity and provide a livelihood for many communities as a source of income or resources. It is therefore crucial that current industries and future developments will ensure continued protection of the marine environment and sustainability of operations. A clear need has been identified for appropriate assessment tools to evaluate the risk and monitor the potential effects of contaminants in tropical marine environments, as currently impact assessments are conducted by application of non-representative approaches. The current research project contributed to satisfy these requirements with the development of a range of novel, standardised toxicity test protocols, broadly applicable for use in tropical Australia, to estimate the chronic impact of single contaminants or industrial discharges in receiving marine environments. en_AU
