Megafauna

GPC’s Gladstone, Rockhampton and Bundaberg port facilities are home to many different types of megafauna or large animals. 

The species of megafauna commonly found in our regions are: 

  • ​Shorebirds
  • Turtles
  • Cetaceans
  • Fish
  • Dugongs
  • Crustaceans

We conduct regular research and monitoring programs to provide information on the health of our megafauna and their habitats to ensure their long-term conservation in our areas.​​​​​​

​Port of Rockhampton

In October 2016 the following catches in kilograms were recorded for Grid S30 Crabs N/A, Fish N/A and Prawn 2,446.4kg, contributing to a total catch of 11,151.58kg for all species. Data is currently only available for the period from January 2016 to October 2016 as there is a minimum three (3) month delay in reporting of the data. 

There will be no data for Barramundi from 1 November to 1 February as there is a closure to catching Barramundi at that time. There is also no data for some months, marked as N/A, as the data was attributed to less than five (5) licences and considered confidential. 

There may also be changes in data from day to day with submission of additional log books.
