Summary

The population structure of mulloway throughout Australian waters was investigated with a view to providing a basis for management decisions for this recreationally and commercially important fishery. This study is limited by two factors:

1. rapid deterioration of tissue samples, affecting both allozymes and mtDNA,

and 2. small sample sizes from key sites and no samples available from Victoria.
