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 Bundaberg​

​Port of Rockhampton

This is the available 2016 commercial catch data (in kg) for Grid S30 within which Port of Gladstone is located, Grid R29 and R30 in which Port of Rockhampton is located, and U32 in which Port of Bundaberg is located. Data is currently only available for the period from January 2016 to October 2016 as there is a three (3) month delay in reporting of the data.  ​  

There will be no data for Barramundi from 1 November to 1 February due to the closure to catching Barramundi at that time. There is also no data for some months, 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.
