Port Curtis Integrated Monitoring Program - Bio Accumulation

PCIMP monitors across 15 sampling zones (54 water sites) in Port Curtis to assess the water quality and health of Port Curtis, with sites ranging from the Narrows in the north to Colosseum Inlet in the south. Included in the zones are sites within the State and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park zones. Oysters Three batches of ten (10) oysters are attached to buoys at each of the 54 sites across the Harbour. The oysters can accumulate metals from the water to provide an indication of the average concentration of metals in the water over the time they were deployed. Oysters are deployed two times a year in March and August and left in the water for approximately three months. Oysters are used to measure bioaccumulation of metals, metalloids and fluoride.
