Abstract: In July 1989 the Prime Minister of Australia, the Rt. Hon. R.J.L. Hawke, MP,announced, as part of his statement on the environment, which was later published as Our County, Our Future, that the Australian Government would fund a four year environmental study of the Torres Strait marine environment. This study, the Torres Strait Baseline Study, was instigated in response to concerns expressed by Torres Strait Islanders, commercial fishermen and scientists, about possible effects on the marine environment of the Torres Strait from mining operations in the Fly River catchment area of Papua New Guinea.
