Objectives

1. Assess the utility of a range of DNA techniques for examining genetic variation within species of penaeid prawn
2. Refine those techniques for examining east coast parwn stocks
3. Describe the genetic stock structure of two commercial species (Penaeus esculantus and P. plebejus) throughout their east coast distribution
4. Determine whether genetically distinct stocks of these species exist in the east coast fishery and, if so, locate the boundaries between such stocks
5. Quantify the potential rates of effective prawn migration between regions for each species
6. Provide specific advice on the management implications of the results
