Marine

The 41% of the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges NRM region that is a marine environment supports flora and fauna in intertidal habitats, marine reefs, extensive seagrass meadows in various states of health, soft and sandy bottom systems and deep water habitats. It also supports commercial and recreational fishing, the state’s major port and its attendant activities, and tourism.

The subregion lies in both Gulf St Vincent and the more exposed waters of Backstairs Passage.
