Improving risk management of paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) in the Blacklip Abalone (Haliotis rubra rubra)

The accumulation of paralytic shellfish toxins (PST) of microalgal origin in abalone tissues causes a trade and human health risk that requires active management. Toxic algal blooms of the genus Alexandrium have recently caused several abalone harvest closures on the east coast of Australia. Risk...

Can commercial harvest of long-spined sea urchins reduce the impact of urchin grazing on abalone and lobster fisheries?

At low-levels of exploitation, commercial harvesting of long-spined sea urchins was found to prevent increase in urchin density. Adjacent unfished locations experienced an increase in both urchin density and grazed area over the 2014 – 2016 study period. Research sampling of populations...
