Fish habitats

Native fish are vital to Australian waterways. They support ecosystem health and serve recreational, commercial, and cultural needs.

We monitor fish habitats and species in both freshwater and marine environments. This research monitors fish populations, tracks invasive fish species and helps understand fish communities.

This project aims to monitor fish communities in nursery seascape, using a range of underwater camera technology. This enhances our understanding of the role habitats play in fish abundance and size.
