marine ecosystems are under increasing and competing demand for their services
and products, with overfishing of our fisheries resources being one of the greatest
threats to the sustainability of our oceans. Seafood sustains billions of
people and is the largest traded food commodity in the world, making seafood a
major contributor to global food security. To ensure that there’s fish for the
future, Australia’s fisheries and marine ecosystems need to be effectively
managed to remain sustainable.
this hands-on workshop, students will learn and utilise the procedures utilised
by fisheries scientists to evaluate the health and population status of key wild
catch fish stocks.
will perform a dissection of a fish to extract the otolith to learn how
scientists analyse and use the information contained within this structure to
determine the health and population structure of the species. The data gathered
through this procedure is central to determining the status of NSW fisheries
stocks and informing fisheries management in NSW and globally.
