Marine habitat mapping


Marine habitat maps describe the physical and biological characteristics for the Northern Territory's (NT) marine environments.

This helps to understand the impact human activities have on these environments and supports the decisions made about sustainable management of marine habitats.

This guide has information on marine habitat mapping in Territory waters, including all of the following:

  • the aim of marine habitat mapping activities in the NT
  • how habitats are mapped
  • mapping the physical environment
  • mapping plant and animal communities.

Read more on Darwin Harbour and our marine environments on the Department of Environment, Parks and Water Security website.
