Management and monitoring of fish spawning aggregations within the West Coast Bio-region of Western Australia

Many strategies have evolved among fishes to maximise spawning success. One of the most striking of these is aggregation spawning, in which individuals group together, often at predictable times and locations in order to reproduce (cf. a school, which refers to a group of non-spawning fish)....

Passive acoustic techniques to monitor aggregations of sound producing fish species

The need to optimise spawning success and survival of offspring by fishes has resulted in the evolution of a vast array of reproductive strategies, such as spawning aggregations. A spawning aggregation is defined by Domeier and Colin (1997) as, “a group of con-specific fish gathered for the...

Revolutionising fish ageing: Using Near Infrared Spectroscopy to Age Fish

Results from the current ‘proof of concept’ study indicate that near infrared (NIR) spectra collected from fish otoliths have potential to estimate the age of Barramundi (Lates calcarifer) and Snapper (Pagrus auratus), with performance varying between species and locality of capture. A...
