Restocking of the Blackwood River Estuary with black bream (Acanthopagrus butcheri)

The results of this study show that hatchery-reared Black Bream can be used to enhance the stock of the population of this commercially and recreationally important species in the Blackwood River Estuary in which it has become depleted. An initial trial of different stains demonstrated that alizarin...

Seafood CRC: optimisation of viral clearance from broodstock prawns using targeted RNA interference

Economic losses due to diseases mostly caused by viruses remain a major obstacle to realizing the production potential of prawn aquaculture industries in many parts of the world. Broodstock used in prawn hatcheries in Australia are generally managed quite intensively and numbers used are generally...

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)....
