This report provides a synthesis of two projects within the National Environmental Science Program (NESP) Tropical Water Quality Hub: NESP Project 2.2.1 Identifying the water quality and ecosystem health threats to the Torres Strait and Far Northern Great Barrier Reef arising from runoff of the Fly River and Project 2.2.2 Impacts of mine derived contamination on Torres Strait environments and communities. It provides a brief summary of key project outputs in a format that is readily accessible to managers and interested community members in the region.
This report draws on information contained in the final reports prepared for each project (Waterhouse et al., 2018 and Apte et al., 2019); readers are referred to these reports for further detail and explanation of the context and results of the projects.
