Moreton Bay is geographically positioned between the transition zone of both tropical waters and temperate waters and is a relatively shallow marine environment. These characteristics combined with a large input of freshwater, results in a complex and fragile ecosystem that is extremely productive. These factors combine to produce a large variety of environments that allow the coexistence of an extremely diverse range of flora and fauna within the Bay.

The spectacular array of habitats found in Moreton Bay include coral reefs, mangroves, seagrass beds, saltmarshes, rocky reefs and sandy bottoms.
