The Influence of Environmental Factors on Recruitment and Availability of Fish Stocks in Southeast Australia

  • Hold a workshop with major stakeholder groups to develop hypotheses about the major environmental drivers and their potential influence of gross fishery characteristics (catch composition, seasonal variations, recruitment pulses etc).
  • Model the influence of environmental/oceanographic conditions on fishery recruitment success and availability.
  • Examine the efficacy of industry-based environmental data collection capabilities.
  • Trial environmental data collection instrumentation on strategic fishing vessels across the SESSF and methods of incorporating this information into assessments.
