Australia is a nation that loves the sea. Coasts, and oceans more broadly, are important as loci of human activity and attract many competing human users, often with conflicting objectives. Little of the oceans is completely untouched by human influences,1 although most human activities are concentrated along coastlines. Near-shore waters also are where most ocean production and food webs are concentrated.
