This cluster examines how industries contribute to the sustainable future of Moreton Bay. We focus on four industries: tourism, fishing (recreational, commercial, indigenous, aquarium and coral), aquaculture and transport. We summarise the historical context, explain the current status, and examine the future opportunities and potential risks for industry and the environment.
