THE GLADSTONE HEALTHY HARBOUR PARTNERSHIP (GHHP) IS PROUD TO RELEASE THE
Gladstone Harbour Report Card 2017
The Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership (GHHP) has been working for the past twelve months to present its third annual report card to the community and stakeholders. The 2017 report card contains the results from the testing of 99 measures within the four components of harbour health: environmental, economic, social, and cultural and presents the evidence based findings to the community in an understandable manner.
The 2017 report card includes, for the first time; mud crabs, coral cover change and sediment mercury within the environmental component. All social, economic, and cultural indicators and measures remain unchanged from those used in the 2016 report card.
Overall, the Gladstone Harbour Report Card 2017 results indicate that the environmental health of Gladstone Harbour is a ‘C’, cultural health of Gladstone Harbour is also a ‘C’, the social health of Gladstone Harbour is a ‘B’ and the economic health of Gladstone Harbour is also a ‘B’.
