Biography

Dr Klaas Hartmann joined the Wild Fisheries group in IMAS in 2009 after working on Field Robotics at CSIRO and completing his mathematics PhD on phylogenetics and conservation prioritisation at the University of Canterbury (NZ). Klaas has worked on a broad range of topics including ecological economics, mathematical ecology and phylogenetics. Throughout his career he has focussed on bridging the gap between theoretical results and their practical application to management decisions.

Klaas Hartmann's primary role at IMAS involves the development of bio-economic fisheries assessment methods and their application to wild fisheries. In this role he has provided scientific advice to support a broad range of fisheries management and government policy decisions. Klaas also conducts a broad range of research projects with a particular interest in the economic aspects of fisheries management. Of particular interest in this context are issues surrounding maximising public benefit from our natural resources and considering flow-on implications of global seafood trade.

General Responsibilities

In my core role at IMAS, I develop bio-economic models of a range of fisheries including Tasmanian rock lobster. These models estimate the current stock status and predict the impact of different future management strategies. I communicate these results to stakeholders (government, industry, and environmental) to facilitate informed decision-making. In externally funded projects my role generally involves the statistical, modelling, or programming aspects, which enables me to work across a broad range of applications and ecological contexts.

Research and Projects

My current projects which involve many other IMAS staff and students include:

Research Themes

Klaas Hartmann's research aligns with the University's research theme of Marine, Antarctic and Maritime. His research concentrates on the development of assessment/modelling methods for wild fisheries and their application to the wild fisheries. This work involves understanding the biological and economic aspects of a fishery and considering the implications of different management strategies. His work has supported decision making in a broad range of fisheries on topics including setting total allowable catches (quotas), size limits, and seasons.A critical and often overlooked challenge in fisheries management is to maximise the benefits to the public from a fishery, not just the catch or the profitability. Traditionally the benefits for commercial fisheries have been considered purely in terms of the resource rent, that is the profit after fishing costs, whilst the benefit for recreational fishers is enjoyment. The challenge for both commercial and recreational fishers is to trade-off stock abundance (and high catch rates) against the amount of catch that can be taken. However, this picture has been further complicated in most modern fisheries where the commercial fishing rights to the public resource have been allocated/given away. In this situation improving the profitability of the commercial fishery primarily benefits the rights owners whilst reducing employment – possibly reducing overall community benefit from the resource. Developing a better understanding of this topic is a key future research direction.

Collaboration

Klaas has been involved in collaborative projects across several Australian states and internationally with collaborators from New Zealand, Canada, USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Sweden.

Larval dispersal for Southern Rock Lobster and Longspined sea urchin to support management decisions (2022 - 2024)$242,861
Description
Larval dispersal patterns for Southern Rock Lobster, Jasus edwardsii, and Long-spined sea urchin, Centrostephanus rodgersii, remain poorly understood. Understanding spatial dispersal patterns is essential for spatial management of these species. Likewise, inter-annual variability in dispersal can lead to low lobster recruitment with large fishery consequences whilst increases in larval dispersal may be responsible for the establishment of Long-spined sea urchin in Tasmania.Our objectives are:Update/develop source/sink connectivity matrices to include contemporary oceanographic models and realistic biological parameterisation.Combine connectivity matrix with knowledge of egg production in different areas to give an understanding of the magnitude of larval flow and identify key source areas for Southern Rock Lobster and Long-spined sea urchin larvae.Determine impact of high recruitment events on Long-spined sea urchin populations in Tasmania and the likelihood of self-recruitment and incursion to the south west of Tasmania with various population growth and climate change scenarios.Investigate various management options for Southern Rock Lobster and Long-spined sea urchin utilising outcomes from Objective 2 and Objective 3.

Tasmanias Marine Atlas (2021 - 2023)$499,646
Description
Marine spatial planning (MSP) has emerged in recent years as a tool for sea use management and helps with the difficult issue of managing multiple users accessing the same space. A process that brings together multiple users of the marine environment to make informed and coordinated decisions about how to use marine resources sustainably, MSP has been heralded as a means by which to reduce conflict over marine and coastal resources, and to assist regarding decisions about the impacts that one use may have on another, as well as the cumulative effects of a multi-use marine environment.Geographical information systems (GIS) have become an essential tool for informing the management of marine areas, especially through MSP. GIS allows the identification of regions of high and/or conflicting usage. A key step prior to the start of an MSP process is to define and analyse existing conditions, to collect and map appropriate information about the biophysical environment as well as human activities. This project addresses this key step. While much marine spatial data is already available through e.g. SeaMap (a national program to collate seafloor habitat data), there is a wealth of other information about the Tasmanian marine environment. Additional biophysical data may include e.g. currents or wave height. Human activity/use data may include e.g. dwellings, harbours, shipping lanes and fishing. This project will draw together spatially-resolved datasets required for ecosystem-based marine management using MSP, for Tasmanian State waters, and will identify gaps which may support future data collection campaigns.Furthermore, this project will investigate the development of simple overlay tools to identify trade-offs at various scales and resolutions of interest, and provide planning for database longevity to continue to assist ecosystem-based decision-making into the future.

Developing a cost-effective monitoring regime and stock assessment for Sand Flathead in Tasmania (2020 - 2023)$343,700
Description
Sand Flathead account for well over half of the total catch (by numbers) taken by marine recreational fishersin Tasmania and represent the mainstay of Tasmania's recreational fishery. Furthermore, since therecreational catch of sand flathead is more than 20 times the commercial catch, trends in commercial catchand catch rates are of little value in inferring changes in stock status. This has meant that fishery independentor novel assessment methods are required. To date, IMAS has implemented a research program focused onsand flathead in the south-east of the state that provides a spatially restricted, perspective and semiquantitativeevaluation of stock condition. Given the significance of the species and a status of 'depleting' inthe latest stock assessment report, there is a need to implement a more comprehensive stock monitoringapproach throughout the state that can support the development of a spatially explicit quantitative stockassessment model. There is also a need to determine the appropriate spatial resolution to apply to the stockassessment model. As such, there is a need to understand the extent of adult movement and ontogeneticconnectivity of regional sub-populations of sand flathead throughout Tasmania. In addition, by collation ofbiological data sets from historical studies and surveys conducted around Tasmania the extent and directionof potential changes in population size structures, and life history characteristics will be investigated. Wherepossible collated biological data will be used to assess spatial and temporal changes in life historycharacteristics to assess the implications of selective excessive fishing pressure and/or past and futureclimate change effects for this species.

Understanding population structure and dynamics of Victorias developing Octopus fishery (2020 - 2022)$372,411
Description
In Victoria, Octopus spp. are predominantly a byproduct species caught across various fisheries. Pale Octopus is not differentiated from other octopus species in catch and effort reporting in Victoria, making it difficult to apply stock assessment methods or catch rate indicators. Maori Octopus (Octopus maorum) are likely caught in the Victorian Rock Lobster Fishery (VRLF); whereas Pale Octopus and Gloomy Octopus (Octopus tetricus) are caught within the Inshore Trawl Fishery, Ocean Access Fishery (OAF), Corner Inlet Fishery (CIF) and Port Phillip and Westernport Bay Fishery (PPWPBF). Targeting octopus using 'shelter traps' within the OAF off Lakes Entrance has significantly increased in 2016 and 2017. The average catch during this period was ten times greater compared with the average catch taken from 2006-2015 with the potential for a developing fishery, management is lacking fundamental information to assist in guiding and building a sustainable fishery. For example, there is no requirement to identify and report quantities of species caught. This makes any sort of assessment impossible. Presently, two license holders actively fish for octopus with a capacity to have many more within the OAF.

Examining the potential impacts of seismic surveys on octopus and larval stages of Southern Rock Lobster (2020 - 2022)$606,770
Description
CGG has NOPSEMA approval for a 3D seismic survey in the Gippsland Basin to commence in early 2020. This survey overlaps the Victorian shelter-pot octopus fishery off Lakes Entrance. This overlap has raised concerns about the potential impacts to octopus and the fishers from the survey. Tank-based experiments simulating seismic exposure have resulted in high levels of damage in several species of octopus, however, it is unclear how experiments conducted in tanks translate into the field. Field-based seismic experiments are rarely conducted on invertebrates, however, a recent study by the applicants (FRDC 2012-008) demonstrated significant impact on scallops from seismic signals. Like scallops, the benthic and relatively sessile habit of octopus leaves them potentially vulnerable to impacts, as they have limited capacity to avoid the waterborne and ground-borne energy of seismic signals. CCG has acknowledged these potential impacts and is supporting this research, through the formation of a Scientific Advisory Committee, a cash contribution and the use of a full seismic survey, with the lack of a full array often a limitation of seismic research. This project will use a field and laboratory experimental approach to provide a thorough assessment of the potential impacts of seismic surveys on octopus pallidus (the primary species captured in the fishery) in the natural environment, as a model species for octopus fisheries. Additionally, the project will examine the potential impact of the seismic survey on octopus catches and catch rates. These approaches will assist octopus fisheries and petroleum regulators to make informed decisions on the timing and manner in which future surveys are performed. Importantly, along with that of CGG, it has the support of the Victorian Fisheries Authority, who have also offered in-kind support, the two octopus fishers in the region, the Lakes Entrance Fishermens co-op and the sustainable shark fishing association.ObjectivesNo.Details1Determine the impact of intense low frequency acoustic signals on adult pale octopus (Octopus pallidus)2Determine the impact of intense low frequency acoustic signals on the development of eggs, hatching rates and competency of the resultant hatchlings.3Outline threshold distances for potential impacts of seismic surveying4Determine the impact of intense low frequency acoustic signals on pale octopus (Octopus pallidus) catch.

Modelling fine-scale larval dispersal for Centrostephanus rodgersii (2019)$25,000
Description
We know that Centrostephanus rodgersii sea urchins have most likely arrived to the east coast of Tasmania from NSW and Victoria via larval transport in the East Australian Current. However, we do not have a solid understanding of how often large recruitment events are likely to occur and which particular reefs are the greatest probable supply/source of larvae to Tasmania. We aim to develop a larval dispersal model for Centro based on an existing dispersal model, combining coarse-scale current simulations ofthe CONNIE model with fine-scale resolution of the Southeast Tasmanian model, and estimates of the biology and vertical behaviour of Centro larvae (communication with and publications from Maria Byrne). Using this model, we can input various scenarios of climate change to predict changes in recruitment pulses and the likelihood of the Tasmanian population producing viable self-recruits.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow: Quantitative Fisheries (2018)$214,372
Description
The postdoctoral fellow will conduct quantitative fisheries research with activities to be adjusted through the course of the project. Activities need to meet aims of both developing skills of the PD and also contributing to management of Tasmanian marine resources. An initial agreed activity is to conduct a stock assessment for the range-extending sea urchin species Centrostephanus rodgersii in Tasmania. C. rodgersii has been harvested commercially since 2009, but the fishery has not been assessed to date. There exist simple stock assessment approaches that may apply to this fishery in considering C. rodgersii a data-poor species. We can also use existing data from a variety of sources to scale up the modelling approach so that management decisions may be applied to defined spatial units and have economic applications.

Dynamics of growth in translocated lobsters (2015)$28,307
Description
This project extends the outputs from two previous CRC projects on translocation of rock lobsters, alarge scale experimental project (Improving yield and profitability of southern rock lobster by spatialmanagement, CRC2006/220) and an extension project (Commercialising translocation of southernrock lobster CRC 2011/744).The previous projects showed that translocation can be used to address several problems that affectthe Tasmanian lobster fishery. Some areas of the fishery are growth overfished, meaning that largerharvests would be sustainable if lobsters were able to grow a little more before being caught. At theother extreme, large areas in deep water off the remote west coast are avoided by fishers because theanimals are pale and fetch a lower price. These areas are however good areas for juvenile lobsters tosettle from the plankton and grow as juveniles. Density of lobsters in these areas is extraordinarilyhigh, with an average catch of over 30 per pot. Although lobsters are numerous, they dont contributeto the harvest because their growth is stunted by competition for food. Translocations simply involvesmoving lobsters from places where they were abundant to places where they were depleted. Althoughconceptually simple, there were naturally a lot of issues and concerns that required research.Translocations have now progressed to commercial scale operations. The project proposed herecompletes analysis of some of the research data collected through the course of the earlier work. Inparticular it involves analysis of growth information that has continued to be collected since theprevious projects finished. This new data comes from tag return data that continues to trickle in asfishers capture and report tagged translocated lobsters.

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.
