Where do Calamari spawn in Northern Tasmania and how will this information aid the management of the Calamari fishery in Northern Tasmania?
Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) Taroona
1. Determine spatial and temporal variation in calamari spawning aggregations and egg masses on the north coast of Tasmania
2. Analyse the recent development of both the commercial and recreational calamari fisheries on the north coast
3. Using the information gathered in objective 1 and 2, investigate the likely impact of the fishery on calamari populations and, if necessary, potential management options to ensure sustainable development
