One of the most significant causes of reef decline in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is certainly the outbreak of Crown-of-Thorns Starfish (COTS), which feed on coral. COTS populations tend to boom very quickly causing devastation of entire reefs. Our goal is to evaluate the connectivity of COTS in the GBR in order to identify the epidemic hotspots. By using the high- resolution unstructured-mesh coastal ocean model SLIM we are able to simulate the complex and multi-scale currents with a spatialdoi:10.6084/m9.figshare.5793735.v1 fatcat:gezy7ijvbnfejdnfs3h2kcb2oi
