In Australia, we have been the Port of Brisbane’s environmental and engineering partner since the 1980s, developing and rolling out their environmental monitoring into a single programme. We also collaborated with the University of Queensland to undertake numerous subprogrammes, including sediment sampling and analysis, using e-DNA.
