In 2009 the Friends of Gulf St Vincent produced a 24 page booklet – “Gulf St Vincent, a precious asset“.

The booklet provides an excellent overview of the gulf’s history, current uses and threats to its health. Please contact us if you would like a copy, or download it from the link above.

Below you can read part of a review by Graham Edgar:

“The scale of this edited volume is highly impressive; 496 pages covering close to all you would want to know about Gulf St Vincent and the Adelaide marine environment, and more.

The 38 chapters encompass a diverse range of topics that include geological history, sediments, physical oceanography, remote sensing, and the ecology of, and threats to, all major habitat types?saltmarsh, mangrove, plankton, subtidal reefs, intertidal shores, seagrasses, jetty piles, soft sediments, estuaries.

Nine chapters are focused on important fishery species, while others discuss threatened and introduced species. In terms of comprehensiveness for regional coastal environments, only reports associated with Port Phillip Bay and Moreton Bay come close.”
