Australian Marine Science Conference Eventranet 2017

Concurrent Session 1: S12: Migratory fishes and their fisheries


Chair: Lynnath Beckley
Around Australia, there is a diverse range of fishes that migrate over various distances (and sometimes between jurisdictions) through estuaries, coastal waters and across oceans (e.g., barramundi, Australian herring, tuna, sharks etc.). Many of these fish species are targeted by commercial, recreational, subsistence and/or traditional fisheries. In this symposium, papers will be encouraged that combine new information on the migratory behaviour and pathways of fishes with the human dimension in terms of the fisheries they support.
