BEMP Monitoring

​​The Broadscale Environmental Monitoring Program (BEMP) provides a comprehensive assessment of ecological condition in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Huon Estuary. The program commenced in March 2009, and is currently undertaken by all marine finfish farm licence holders in the D’Entrecasteaux Channel and Huon/ Port Esperance Marine Farm Development Plan areas.

The objective of this program is to document broadscale spatial and temporal trends for key environmental parameters, allowing assessment of the environmental effects of finfish aquaculture in the region. Fifteen sites within the Marine Farm Development Plan areas are monitored throughout the year to assess spatial and temporal patterns of water and sediment quality.

The report - ​Evaluation of BEMP Monitoring from 2009 to 2012​ is available through IMAS (pdf 4MB).

The 2012/13 to 2016/17 BEMP report covers a 5-year period
