Description: In 1991, CSIRO was approached to design and manage an environmental study of the Bay to seek answers to questions concerning the sustainable use and management of the Bay. The Study began in October 1992 and finished in June 1996. The Port Phillip Bay Environmental Study was managed by CSIRO and supervised by a Management Committee chaired by the (then) Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. Also represented on the committee were the EPA, Melbourne Water, Melbourne Parks and Waterways and the former Port of Melbourne Authority. The Study was totally funded by Melbourne Water and Melbourne Parks and Waterways. In all, some 47 research tasks were conducted, ranging from scientific literature reviews to fullscale field surveys. All were contracted out. Of the 30 contractors, six were Victorian State agencies, three Commonwealth agencies, nine universities and 12 consultants. Nineteen contractors were Victorian based, seven from interstate and four from overseas. The research programs covered the fields of physical oceanography, toxicants, algal nutrients, marine ecology and ecological modelling.
