In March 2004 the ‘BioRoss Survey’ assessed the biodiversity of selected marine assemblages in the northwestern Ross Sea. The survey found that depth-related variables were the main environmental drivers for the fish assemblages, while a combination of large-scale oceanographic and local habitat variables influence the patterns of macroinvertebrate assemblage composition. The survey data and findings provide useful information for the conservation and environmental management of the region.
