Chapters 1–5 indicate key issues and knowledge gaps in Australian seagrass research related to fisheries habitat and productivity. The following R&D plan addresses these gaps and issues. The plan will allow FRDC to confront the issues and gaps in a coordinated way. It should also assist other agencies in their seagrass related research, and it suggests ways that FRDC and other agencies, such as Environment Australia, could interact to provide maximum synergy for seagrass research. The R&D plan has been divided into the following sections: • Roles of funding agencies and their R&D responsibilities • Suggested structure to maintain the R&D linkages between organisations • Key issues and knowledge gaps • Goals of the R&D plan • Priorities for seagrass R&D • Strategies to implement, maintain and develop the R&D pla
