Projects

Fish Forever MA+R Design and Assessment Extension (2021)$64,717
Description
This project forms part of a long-term collaboration between IMAS Fisheries & Aquaculture and the USbased conservation NGO Rare. Supporting Rares Fish Forever program, the project aims to advance the management ofdata-poor, small-scale reef fisheries through basic and applied research in support of conservation planning and fisheriesmanagement decision-making.

Improving assessment approaches for deep-water species (2021)$24,000
Description
The project aims to estimate productivity of Orange Roughy stocks and undertake a risk assessment that incorporates the uncertainty in OrangeRoughy natural mortality and steepness of the stock recruitment relationship. The project further aims to review the characteristics and discardingpractices of species in the Deepwater shark basket (multiple species are assessed as a single complex)

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.

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.

Options to effectively monitor and regulate recreational catch limits in the Tasmanian rock lobster fishery (2020 - 2021)$110,000
Description
The project aims to combine an in-depth global review of existing recreational fisheries management systems with a feasibility analysis of specific management schemes to effectively monitor and regulate recreational rock lobster catches. It will thereby help to achieve Tasmanian stock recovery targets for this highly valuable and heavily fished species.
