dc.description.abstractThe Magnetic Quay development, at Nelly Bay on Magnetic Island, Queensland, is the first major development to impinge on marine environment around Magnetic Island. Insofar as the development may affect areas of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, it comes under the auspices of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority. The GBRMPA stipulated in 1988 that the construction of Magnetic Quay was conditional inter alia on the funding, by the developers, of baseline and environmental impact studies. This document is the report of the baseline study of the benthic biota and sedimentation on the fringing reefs along the .south-east coast of Magnetic Island, including the reefs in Nelly Bay.en
