The current Great Barrier Reef (GBR) Marine Monitoring Program (MMP) includes measures of Seagrass, Coral, and Water Quality. MMP monitoring of water quality in the Fitzroy NRM region was discontinued in 2015, meaning that a score could not be calculated. In 2021, however, a new Fitzroy Basin Marine Monitoring Program for Inshore Water Quality began, funded by a partnership between the Australian Government’s Reef Trust, the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, and Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). This program is designed to measure the annual condition and long-term trends of coastal waters between the mouth of the Fitzroy River and North Keppel Island.
