|Title:||Chapter 8: Estuaries and the sea|
|Publisher:||Commonwealth of Australia|
|Abstract:||Australia, as an island continent with a long coastline, has many different marine and estuarine environments. Most of these are far removed from the major population centres and are little affected by human activities. The northern, far northeastern and most of the western coasts of the continent, the Great Australian Bight and Australia's External Territories in the Indian Ocean, South Pacific, Southern Ocean and Antarctica are among the least-polluted places on earth. However, even the most remote regions show traces of persistent global pollutants. In 1995, the Commonwealth Government published a major report — ‘Our Sea, Our Future’ (Zann, 1995) — which indicated the growing recognition of the importance of estuaries and the sea. Together with its associated technical papers, the report has provided substantial reference material.|
