Report

The Bremer Marine Park includes habitats that are representative of the Albany Canyon Group, a feature consisting of 32 canyons that cut deeply into the continental slope. These canyons are believed to be associated with small periodic upwellings that enhance productivity and attract aggregations of marine life. Sea lions, orcas and humpback whales are regular visitors to Bremer Marine Park, creating a hive of marine activity alongside calving southern right whales and the wheeling and diving of foraging seabirds.

The park is approximately half-way between Albany and Esperance, offshore from Fitzgerald River National Park. It covers 4,472 square kilometres, and has National Park and Special Purpose (Mining Exclusion) zones.Parks Australia

Bremer ranges from 37 to 4,365 metres depth, with an average depth of 1,654 metres. The majority of the park (43%) falls within the lower-slope zone (2,000-4,000 metres). [View on map] The mapped areas of the seafloor are dominated by Plane (33%) and Slope (31%) geomorphology. [View on map]
