Considerable technical developments over the past half century have enabled widespread application of electronic tags to the study of animals in the wild, including in freshwater environments. We review the constraints associated with freshwater telemetry and biologging and the technical developments relevant to their use. Technical constraints for tracking(More)
BACKGROUND Indo-Pacific high island streams experience extreme hydrological variation, and are characterised by freshwater fish species with an amphidromous life history. Amphidromy is a likely adaptation for colonisation of island streams following stochastic events that lead to local extirpation. In the Wet Tropics of north-eastern Australia, steep(More)
Nine polymorphic microsatellite loci have been used to infer population genetic diversity and structure of the threatened Australian freshwater fish, Macquarie perch, across three tributaries of the Murrumbidgee River in south-eastern Australia. This investigation has revealed a high level of divergence among all three populations, along with contrasting(More)
The scale and patterns of movement and habitat use are primary considerations in the conservation and management of threatened species. Movement, activity and habitat use of the threatened two-spined blackfish Gadopsis bispinosus were assessed in a small upland reservoir in south-eastern Australia using manual and remote radio-telemetry. Movements and(More)
