Dr Sean Tracey is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. With a diverse portfolio in fisheries and marine ecosystems science, he conducts innovative research across multiple disciplines to address critical questions of both ecological consequence and facilitates sustainable management of marine resources. His work spans the study of marine species and how they interact with each other and their environment, assessing commercial and recreational fisheries and more recently, the importance of seafood to global food security. Through twenty years research experience at a state, national and international level, Doctor Tracey has been able to facilitate a big picture perspective to local issues and, conversely, the importance of local issues to global challenges.

Biography

Dr Tracey began his career working for the commercial fishing and seafood processing industries; these experiences consolidated his passion for working in the aquatic environment. In 2000, he received a Bachelor of Applied Science (Fisheries) from the Australian Maritime College and shortly after began working as a technical officer at the Tasmanian Inland Fisheries Service. In 2001 he transitioned to the marine realm, taking a position as a technical officer at the Tasmanian Aquaculture and Fisheries Institute (TAFI). In 2004, while continuing to work fulltime as a technical officer across a broad range of projects relating to scalefish and cephalopod species, he began his PhD studies. In 2007 he was awarded his PhD and was armed with seven years of on the ground practical experience in fisheries research and a drive to transition this experience into the areas of academia and applied research for sustainable management of marine resources. At the time of completing his PhD he successfully applied for a Research Fellow position at TAFI to work on recreational fisheries research.

In 2009 Dr Tracey was seconded by the National Geographic Society to work on the 'Sea Around Us' project, an internationally prestigious project funded by the PEW charitable trust and run through the University of British Columbia. Assisting the 'Sea Around Us' project offered new career experiences through working to harmonise global fisheries catch datasets contributing a spatially referenced global estimate of catch which has been utilised in multiple high profile papers.

With continued success at TAFI/IMAS and with an impressive record of publication and success in attracting high profile research funding, Dr Tracey was selected in 2014 to join the inaugural University of Tasmania 'Group of Eight' Future Research Leaders Program.

Dr Tracey has authored more than 25 peer-reviewed publications since his PhD completion in 2007, including publications in Nature and Nature Communications, and with most others in journals well above the median impact factor for the discipline of Fisheries Research. He has sourced >$4.1M in research funding across his career and supervises a number of post-graduate students with diverse research topics. He actively collaborates nationally and globally on a range of fish and fisheries related projects.

Research Themes

Dr Sean Tracey's research aligns with the University's research themes - Marine, Antarctic and Maritime; Environment, Resources and Sustainability; and Data, Knowledge and Decisions.

Satellite tag technology and large pelagic fish: A fundamental assumption of catch and release recreational fishing, as well as the common management strategies of bag and possession limits, is that released fish have a high probability of survival. In many cases this is untested. Dr Tracey and his research team are using state of the art satellite tag technology to explore the behavior, migratory paths and ultimately the fate of key large pelagic fish species once they have been released after recreational capture. The research is providing fundamental insights into the efficacy of common fisheries management strategies for iconic species, including southern bluefin tuna and broadbill swordfish. By also assessing factors occurring during capture and physiological responses to these factors, the research will aid in developing responsible and sustainable recreational fishing practices whilst improving animal welfare and furthering our understanding of these ecologically and socially important species.

Global seafood futures: There are concerns that many of the world's large fisheries are over-exploited and in some areas this is true.  However, there is a need to balance sustainable fisheries with the protein requirements of a global population and through careful planning and management seafood can sustainably contribute to our growing food requirements. Dr Tracey is collaborating with leading researchers from IMAS, the CSIRO and the University of Washington on an Australian Research Council Discovery Project led by Professor Reg Watson that is using historical data to minimize potential disasters and to maximize seafood opportunities by developing a model of Australia's fisheries and their response to future environmental and management change. Fisheries and seafood production are an important part of Australia's economy and future food security but are vulnerable to, and a cause of change, in critical marine environments. A range of approaches will estimate what Australia's ultimate seafood production potential is, establish the environmental providence of Australia's seafood imports vital to the domestic industry and consumers, and, add important environmental credentials to national fisheries stock assessments essential for future competitive exports.

Connectivity of Southern Rock Lobster stocks:  Fisheries depend on the continual replenishment of stock removed by natural processes and fishing, hence, the recruitment of juveniles is fundamental to sustaining stocks. Despite this criticality, this is an area with the least information for most fisheries. Dr Tracey is collaborating with leading IMAS researchers on an Australian Research Council Linkage Project led by Dr Bridget Green to address this gap in the valuable southern rock lobster fishery. Recent declines in lobster recruitment across southern Australia indicate the need to understand the flow of larvae. The aim of the project is to understand the fundamental link between spawning stock and recruitment, to enable improved predictions of recruitment and management of adult stocks to maximise future recruitment, therefore safeguarding the future of this fishery.

Development and implementation of methods to assess recreational fisheries:  Recreational fishing in Australia is a well-subscribed pastime, and as such has substantial biological, social and economic implications. High quality data over a range of spatial and temporal scales are critical for assessing and managing fisheries resources, promoting sustainable recreational fishing, developing and supporting the industry and understanding the contribution of recreational fishing to individuals, society and the economy. Compulsory data collection systems are in place for Australia's commercial fisheries, but detailed information on the biological, social and economic impacts of recreational fishing is lacking, particularly at the national scale. An objective of the Australian Government's Policy for a More Competitive and Sustainable Fisheries Sector (August 2013) is to conduct national recreational fishing surveys every five years. Dr Tracey is collaborating with researchers from across Australia to develop a cost-effective, repeatable framework using 'best-practice' methods for implementing these recreational surveys in Australia. Furthermore, these broad scale surveys often do not capture precise information for niche fisheries and alternate survey methods are required.  Dr Tracey is a co-investigator on a Fisheries Research and Development Corporation led by ABARES to assess the national recreational catch and effort of southern bluefin tuna.  This is an important component of Australia's obligations to the international management efforts to rebuild and sustainably engage with the southern bluefin tuna population.  Beyond these high level projects Dr Tracey in collaboration with Dr Jeremy Lyle in regularly implementing recreational fishing surveys relevant to Tasmania at a range of spatial scales and targeting particular fisheries of ecological, social and economic importance.  The methods used in these surveys have been internationally peer-reviewed and are considered 'world's best practice'.

Where do Calamari spawn in Northern Tasmania and how will this information aid the management of the Calamari fishery in Northern Tasmania? (2016 - 2019)$169,493
Description
Calamari, like most cephalopods, are highly productive, however there short lifespan means that it is vitally important that they are allowed to spawn successfully as there is only ever a single cohort within the fishery. The north coast calamari fishery is expanding in terms of catch and effort by both the commercial and recreational sectors and there is no mechanism to prevent further expansion by either sector. There is currently no understanding of spatial or temporal variation in spawning in this region and environmental conditions are vastly different to the south east. The impacts of the expansion on the productivity of the species is unknown and thus, there is no information available to predict the possible impact of further expansion, which is likely to occur in both the recreational and commercial sectors. The calamari fishery is increasing in value and overexpansion in this fishery is likely to have negative economic ramifications for the fishery due to both overcapacity and decreased productivity.

Climate-driven range shifts in fishes and the impacts on temperate marine ecosystems (2016 - 2017)$11,750
Description
How individual species respond to rising water temperature is a primary determinant of changing species distributions. Species-level responses to climate change underpin the structure and function of marine ecosystems, and the fisheries that operate within them. However, the rate and magnitude of species range extensions is highly variable and we have only a fledgling understanding of species-level factors that can help to explain range extensions in warming oceans. South-east Australia is internationally recognised as an ocean warming hotspot, and thus offers and ideal natural laboratory in which to investigate species-level responses to climate change. The research proposed here will investigate climate change impacts on two iconic marine fishes, yellowtail kingfish and pink snapper, which have contrasting life history strategies and have recently been identified to have extended their historic range into Tasmanian waters in response to ocean warming in this area. This project will develop species-level understanding of climate change impacts, significantly improving our ability to provide advice relevant to the strategic management of these valuable natural resources.

Population connectivity of shark and ray species in the Pacific Ocean (2015 - 2016)$10,000
Description
In collaboration with the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR), this PhD project will identify the stock structure and connectivity for a number of threatened sharks and rays between Australia, Papua New Guinea and Indonesia. If a high degree of connectivity is identified, fishing pressure from less regulated Indo-Pacific countries may have significant effects on Australian shark and ray populations. This Holsworth grant will contribute to the study of two of the most endangered elasmobranch species in the region; the Narrow Sawfish (Anoxypristis cuspidata) and Scalloped Hammerhead (Sphyrna lewini). The number of sawfish and hammerheads are declining globally (Compagno et al2005), with Australian waters considered the last strong hold for both iconic species (Devitt et al. 2015; Harry et al. 2011). While sawfish and hammerheads are protected in Australia, both are disproportionately impacted by Indo-Pacific fisheries outside Australian waters. In its first year, this study will investigate if Australian populations of the Narrow Sawfish and Scalloped Hammerhead are shared with neighbouring countries using a combination of well-established and cutting-edge genetic techniques. Use of a multi-marker approach allows historic and contemporary stock boundaries to be described therefore providing valuable information for fisheries managers. Population connectivity between nations with vastly different fisheries and conservation management priorities can pose a serious threat to the resilience of shark and ray species. Moreover, the removal of apex predators can have disastrous effects on local marine biodiversity. It is crucial to identify such factors in order to develop sustainable fishing practises for national and international interests. In association with ACIAR, this project will help educate and improve the current management policy of the shark and ray fishery in PNG by working alongside the National Fisheries Authority (NFA). Resolving issues of overfishing in neighbouring Pacific Islands will have positive and lasting effects for shark and ray populations protected in Australia.

Development of methods for obtaining national estimates of the recreational catch fo southern bluefin tuna (2014)$17,000
Description
This project will develop and test methodologies to provide a national estimate of the recreational catch of southern bluefin tuna (SBT). It will design a cost-effective program to regularly collect, analyse and report on recreational SBT catches and associated fishing activities. The project will assess a range of recreational fishing survey methodologies and review existing state based survey data on the recreational harvest of SBT to determine methods appropriate to assess the recreational harvest of SBT at a national level.

Fishing for change: enhancing Australia's seafood futures (2014 - 2016)$223,142
Description
Seafood production is an important part of Australias economy and future food security. In a dual relationship, fisheries are both vulnerable to and a cause of changes in the marine environment. The project will identify the maximum limits to Australian seafood production and determine the impacts of future perturbations. To achieve this, it will: 1) combine existing rich historical data sources with state-of-the art ecosystem and fisheries models; 2) analyse environmental impacts that will complement national fisheries stock assessments that are essential for future competitive exports; and 3) determine our growing seafood imports and their role in Australias and the worlds food security.

Understanding the stock-recruitment relationship to reverse the decline in the southern rock lobster. (2012 - 2015)$924,779
Description
The recruitment of juveniles is fundamental to the continual replenishment of fishery stocks removed by natural processes and fishing. This project will draw on recent developments in genetic and oceanographic tools to determine the scale of the stockrecruitment relationship in the valuable but declining southern rock lobster fisheries. The aim is to identify strategies for rebuilding and managing stocks that have naturally fluctuating recruitment, and to establish optimal locations to target rebuilding.
