Welcome to the Moreton Bay Online Podcast. 

On this show, I interview the people who live around Moreton Bay, and discover what they love about it, how they came to be here, and how they interact with it.

Moreton Bay is special to all of us, for a huge number of reasons, and sharing those reasons with each other is one way we can build community and coastal capacity - and promote custodianship so that our bay stays beautiful and productive for the generations to come.

This research, the podcast, and the Moreton Bay Online social media accounts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, have been supported by the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, and Innovation, through an Advance Queensland grant. We are very grateful for their support!

Dr Daryl McPhee has substantial expertise in ecological and social research for coastal zones, including fisheries research. He’s also an author, and in 2017 published his book Environmental History and Ecology of Moreton Bay, which is essential reading for anyone who wants to know Moreton Bay more intimately.

Daryl was kind enough to answer all the questions I threw at him - and he has so much knowledge I didn't know where to start!

We talked about a couple of stories that didn't make the book, provoked and unprovoked shark attacks, how citizen science can capture the full experience of recreational fishing (not just the catch numbers), charismatic megafauna, and many other things besides.

Check out the Moreton Bay Online blog for more on some of these topics, and keep up to date with Daryl and the book on Facebook.
