Research

Onsite research

Ocean Park is involved in the WA state government’s research projects into passive shark attack mitigation technologies, the Department of Fisheries fish population surveys and the Department of Parks and Wildlife’s Monkey Mia Dolphins project on a regular basis.

University programs

At Ocean Park we openly encourage cooperation with universities and support scientific studies. We allow university researchers to access the facilities at Ocean Park where three studies into passive shark mitigation strategies were recently undertaken by students from Curtin University in Perth. Our staff also assist with Florida International University’s Shark Bay Ecosystem Research Project.

If you represent a university or marine research organisation and feel you could benefit from working alongside the team at Ocean Park, contact us to discuss the possibilities.
