Universal properties in size distributions of aquatic species (2022 - 2024)$456,000
Description
Knowledge about the body size distributions in natural populations is central to ecology and management. Body sizes are rapidly changing due to human impacts, but we still do not know how and why. This project will bring together large datasets collected through traditional and citizen science methods and advances in size based theory to assess general properties in body size distributions across thousands of aquatic species, estimate and predict temperature and harvest impacts through space and time, and advance size-based theory and its application. We will develop practical statistical tools for management and conservation of data poor species worldwide, focusing on non-traditional data sources.

The multiple values attained through partially protected areas (2022 - 2024)$227,635
Description
The project proposal is in response to an EOI set out by the FRDC. The project is now in the full application stage.This project will review definitions of the main objectives for (partially protected areas) PPAs across Australia andcharacterise their implementation across Australia. We will then quantify the extent to which specific types of PPAs achievetheir stated goals and use the results to develop evidence-based decision support tools, in conjunction withmarine resource managers, to facilitate effective implementation of appropriate marine policies

Identifying biological stocks of Silver Trevally and Ocean Jackets for assessment and management (2021 - 2023)$458,203
Description
This application is required primarily to address the needs of FRDC and the SAFS advisory group to resolve stock uncertainty for two priority speciesacross their national distributions, being Silver Trevally and Ocean Jackets.The results will inform future SAFS assessments that will ideally be done at the biological stock level. In addition, understanding appropriate scales forassessment and management will benefit future collaborative research, stock assessments and management arrangements. In particular, SilverTrevally in eastern Australia is recognized as being Depleted in NSW waters, yet if there is a single biological stock also being fished by neighbouringjurisdictions (for example the Commonwealth fisheries) there will need to be improved collaboration in terms of stock assessment and management torecover the stock.All relevant jurisdictions have identified the need to resolve stock structure of Silver Trevally and Ocean Jackets as they are important to commercialand recreational fisheries across their distributions.Note this project is led by Dr John Stewart from NSW DPI. Assoc. Professor Sean Tracey and Dr. Nils Krueck has been invited on as a co-investigator. Theproject has been approved by FRDC for a total Funding request of $458,203.

Development of a user-friendly Management Strategy Evaluation framework for Queensland's rocky reef fishery (2020)$9,800
Description
As part of the Sustainable Fisheries Strategy (SFS), the Queensland Government now aspires fishery stocks to be at about 60% of virgin biomass, which equates roughly to maximum economic yield. Further, on the 18-19 September 2018, the Rocky Reef Working Group (RRWG) members stated that there was a need to improve snapper and pearl perch stocks. Given the relatively poor state of the snapper fishery, RRWG members discussed on 4-5 February 2019 that some urgent management options are required to increase snapper abundance. This included management ideas of reducing the harvest by 30% across all fishing sectors for a time, and better protecting spawning fish. However, the cost and benefit of these options, and others, on fish stocks and fishing remain unquantified. It is therefore necessaru to analyse options, and understand possible management changes to better-inform stakeholders.

Fish Forever MA+R Design and Assessment (2020)$50,598
Description
Rare is a natural resource management NGO based in the United States. IMAS Fisheries & Aquaculture are planning long-term collaborations with Rare of mutual strategic benefit, including annually renewed contracts on the management of data-poor, small-scale fisheries in the context of Rares Fish Forever program. We further anticipate long- term collaborations by accessing the Australian Research Council Linkage Project scheme under which Rare will act as industry partner committed to co-funding (US$100,000 per application). This contract is a starting point for long-term collaborations, which will include basic and applied research, management decision support, and the development ofmanagement decision support tools.

Responding to unintended consequences - evaluating changes to fisheries under ITQ systems (2020 - 2021)$201,212
Description
Individual Transferable Quotas (ITQs) and Individual Transferable Effort (ITE) have been introduced to a wide range of Australian fisheries (FRDC 2017-159). Since 1985, forty-six ITQ systems have been introduced for a range of species and can be found across all jurisdictions in Australia; six ITE systems have also been introduced and relate mostly to prawn trawl operations. Such systems allocate shares or portions of a total allowable catch (TAC), or total allowable effort (TAE), between fishers, vessels, communities or others with an interest in the fishery.Experience shows that ITQs as generally designed and implemented have not always fully delivered promised outcomes, have had outcomes that were unintended, and in some instances have resulted in outcomes that make it difficult for fisheries managers to deliver against other, in many cases non-economic objectives of fisheries management. In some instances these unintended consequences may also have been inappropriately attributed to the ITQ system, and may more be down to other drivers such as globalisation or changes in stock abundance.Building on industry and managements growing interest in improving ITQ-fishery outcomes (SRL Corporatisation Workshop, Melbourne Airport, October 2019) and on the findings of FRDC 2017-159: Retrospective assessment of ITQs, this work will aim to provide evidence-based advice to management and industry on options to address any performance gaps or unintended consequences, and the potential effects of any proposed interventions on the economic, social and environmental outcomes of the ITQ system as generally implemented in Australian fisheries. The scope of options will include industry-led private sector initiatives, as well as Government-led changes to management.Experience shows that ITQs as generally designed and implemented have not always fully delivered promised outcomes, have had outcomes that were unintended, and in some instances have resulted in outcomes that make it difficult for fisheries managers to deliver against other, in many cases non-economic objectives of fisheries management.

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.
