    A project investigating the restoration of string kelp (Macrocystis pyrifera) habitat on Tasmania's east and south coasts. Macroalgae, fish and invertebrate counts were collected as part of the project using the Edgar Barrett transect technique in the Derwent Estuary and in the Mercury Passage on the South East Tasmania. Other fish, invertebrate and macroalgal data was also collected.

  • This dataset contains the results from an investigation of the fishery off Macquarie Island. The data were obtained from the Austral Leader, an 85m long stern trawler, between December 1994 and February 1995. The aim of the fishing voyage was to determine whether sufficient catches could be made to enable dedicated voyages to the area to be profitable, and if time allowed to search for other fishable areas. The Austral Leader had been granted a licence by the Australian Fisheries Management Authority (AFMA) to fish in Commonwealth controlled waters within the Australian EEZ around Macquarie Island. A previous voyage in November-December 1994 had made a preliminary survey of the grounds surrounding the island. 59 tows were made in the vicinity of the island, and all but 10 were made in an area west of the island. No worthwhile catches were made in any other areas. The main species caught were the Patagonian Toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) and Rats Tails (Macrourus carinatus). Basic biological data were collected on the catches where possible including: standard and total length, sex, gonad maturity, and stomach contents.

  • Data from fish captured by Erwin, Casey 1988. Includes fish size, weight, sex, reproductive stage data as well as quantitative stomach contents data and qualitative position data. Approximate locations where fish were caught are provided in the database. Additionally an approximate image map is also provided as a visual reference. These data are stored in an Access Database.

  • This dataset contains the data from Voyage 6 1990-91 of the Aurora Australis. The observations were taken from the Prydz Bay area, Antarctica in January and February 1991. The data contains the results from pelagic fish trawl surveys. The major species were Pleuragramma antarcticum, Channich thyid, Dacodraco hunteri and Neopagetopsis ionah. This is a subset of the data for the whole voyage. The objectives of the fish program were: to assess the distribution and abundance of pelagic fish in the Prydz Bay area; to re-sample bottom fish at sites on the continental shelf previously sampled with a small beam trawl, but using a large atter trawl to check the validity of the beam trawl's samples; to investigate the biology of the more important species. 177 midwater trawls were successfully completed at 59 stations.

  • Thirteen species of fish have so far been caught in the inshore waters around the Vestfold Hills, including the Rauer Islands, in depths down to approximately 100 m. Species caught depend markedly on the type of fishing gear used, but three species are clearly dominant numerically. Pagonthenia bernacchii is most abundant in the shallower (less than 20 m deep) weedy and rocky habitats, while Chionodraco hamatus is dominant in the deeper (greater than 20 m deep) nearshore troughs and further offshore. Pagonthenia borchgrevinki occupies the specialised habitat associated with sea ice and close-inshore areas, including fjords and Burton Lake. The species list from the Vestfold Hills area is similar to lists from comparable locations in East Antarctica except for the major difference that C. hamatus has not yet been recorded from such shallow waters at the other locations, while P. bernacchi and P. hansoni are much more abundant in water deeper than 20 m at those sites than at Davis.

  • This dataset contains the data from Voyage 6 (FISHOG) 1991-92 of the Aurora Australis. The observations were taken from the Heard Island area in January and February 1992. The data contains temperature and salinity data from a CTD survey and the results from demersal fish trawl surveys. The major species were Dissostichjus eleginoides, Channichthys rhinoceratus, Channichthys gunnari, Lepidonotothen squamifrons, Gymnoscopelus nicholsi and Paradiplospinus gracilis. This is a subset of the data for the whole voyage. The objectives of the fish program were: to assess the distribution and abundance of demersal fish on the shelf in the AFZ around Heard Island; to investigate the biology of the more important species.

  • This dataset contains the data from Voyage 7.2 (HIMS) 1989-90 of the Aurora Australis. There were three objectives of the fish program: To assess the distribution and abundance of demersal fish on the shelf in the AFZ around Heard Island; to investigate the biology of the more important species; to take samples to determine by mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis whether the Heard Island Champsocephalus gunnari are a genetically distinct stock from those around Kerguelen Islands. The observations were taken from around Heard Island between May and June 1990. The data contains temperature and salinity data from a CTD survey and the results from various trawl surveys. The major species were Dissostichus eleginoides, macrourus holotrachys, Champsocephalus gunnari and Notothenia squamifrons. Numbers, species identity, guts and gonad data were obtained.
