NCCP: Population dynamics and Carp biomass estimates

This study was undertaken by the Arthur Rylah Institute for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. Carp (Cyprinus carpio) is Australia’s most invasive pest fish. To facilitate more effective management, the Australian Government is considering release of a Carp herpesvirus...

Developing a fishery independent estimate of biomass for snapper

This study was undertaken by the South Australia Research and Development Institute (SARDI). Through overcoming considerable technical challenges, this study was the first to successfully develop a relatively non-destructive molecular probe that can reliably identify Snapper (Chrysophrys auratus)...

Cephalopod beak identification and biomass estimation techniques: tools for dietary studies of southern Australian finfishes

Squid, octopus and cuttlefish (cephalopods) are known to be an important food source for many marine animals including whales, porpoise, seals, seabirds, tuna, sharks and swordfish. The hard beaks (chitinous mandibles) of these preys are frequently encountered in predator stomachs. Cephalopod beaks...

Assessment of broad-scale exploitation rates and biomass estimates for the Tasmanian southern rock lobster fishery

Exploitation rate is an important fishery assessment parameter linking catch to legal-sized biomass, the portion of the stock available for harvest.  Relative change in legal-sized biomass is a crucial performance indicator for the fishery as it measures the success of management...

Developing a rapid molecular identification technique to improve egg production based fish biomass assessments

This project aimed to develop a rapid and affordable molecular method to identify fish eggs from plankton samples. The method selected was a multiplex bead array method where species-specific probes are developed and bound to beads which fluoresce when passed through a flow cytometer if bound to the...
