The impacts of deep-sea fisheries on benthic communities: a review
Deep-sea fisheries operate globally throughout the world's oceans, chiefly targeting stocks on the upper and mid-continental slope and offshore seamounts. Major commercial fisheries occur, or haveExpand

Seabed habitat on the south-eastern Australian continental shelf: context, vulnerability and monitoring
A hierarchical approach to mapping seabed habitat is presented. A provincial scale survey that included hydrography and geology provided the context for interpreting habitat use and vulnerability. AExpand

Pelagic biomass and community structure over the mid-continental slope off southeastern Australia based upon acoustic and midwater trawl sampling
We compare estimates of biomass and communlty structure based upon depth-stratified sampling from 0 to 900 m at a site on the continental slope south of Tasmania. Australia, using an EK500 acousticExpand

Scales of habitat heterogeneity and megabenthos biodiversity on an extensive Australian continental margin (100–1100 m depths)
The first large systematic collection of benthic invertebrate megafauna from the Australian continental margin (depths > 100 m) revealed high species richness and novelty on the south-westernExpand

Diversity, density and community structure of the demersal fish fauna of the continental slope off western Australia (20 to 35° S)
The first survey of the continental-slope demersal fish fauna off the west coast of Aus- tralia — the region between latitudes 20 to 35° S in depths from ~200 to 1500 m — was undertaken in 1991. MostExpand

Delineating fish-habitat associations for spatially based management: an example from the south-eastern Australian continental shelf
A multi-scale, multi-gear survey identified the spatial structure and compositions of fish communities from a range of seabed types on the south-eastern Australian continental shelf (25 m to ∼200 mExpand

Evaluating impacts of fishing on benthic habitats: a risk assessment framework applied to Australian fisheries
Ecosystem-based management (EBM), in the context of fishing, considers impacts on all parts of an exploited marine ecosystem. Understanding the impacts of fishing on habitats is a necessary part ofExpand
