The Gladstone Port Authority in 1995 invited Central Queensland University (CQU), through its developing Centre for Environmental Management (CEM), to instigate long term marine environmental programs for Port Curtis involving initially benthos and later seagrass and mangroves under the direction of Senior Research Fellow/Senior Lecturer, Dr Michael Walker. The macrobenthic program is the cornerstone of marine environmental research and monitoring undertaken by the CQU Centre for Environmental Management. The macrobenthic program in terms of design and implementation follows the program developed by GPA and WBM in 1993. This program has been reported previously (Walker and McNamara, 1997). This report documents the results of this macrobenthic program to the ceasation of November sampling 28 November 1997 and past sample processing to 18 February 1998.
