The Aquatic Zoology department is currently undertaking a research project to establish the first bioresources library in WA, which will be one of only three marine bioresources libraries in Australia. The aim of this library is to facilitate access to Western Australian marine biodiversity for biodiscovery. This project is funded by the Western Australian Marine Science Institute (WAMSI) in research Node 5 (Marine biodiscovery, biotechnology and aquaculture: the blue farm). This is a collaborative project between WAM and AIMS.
