Larval Fish Assemblages in South-east Australian Coastal Waters: Seasonal and Spatial Structure
Abstract Seasonal, vertical and horizontal differences in the larval fish assemblages occurring in temperate inner continental shelf waters off Sydney, south-eastern Australia, between December 1989Expand
Age, growth, maturity and the overfishing of the iconic sciaenid, Argyrosomus japonicus, in south-eastern, Australia.
The results suggest that the spawning stock of mulloway in south-eastern Australia has been depleted and that remedial management action is required to protect this iconic species. Expand
Temperature dependence of fish performance in the wild: links with species biogeography and physiological thermal tolerance
A comparison of field- and laboratory-derived data highlights the ecological significance of aerobic metabolic scope in fishes and suggests wild fish species tend to perform best near the highest temperatures encountered in their range while maintaining a safety margin from the deleterious effects of upper critical temperatures.

Synopsis of biological, fisheries and aquaculture‐related information on mulloway Argyrosomus japonicus (Pisces: Sciaenidae), with particular reference to Australia
Argyrosomus japonicus is a member of the family Sciaenidae, which are commonly known as drums and croakers and is important in many recreational and commercial fisheries, but like other sciaenids, is prone to overfishing. Expand
Marine genetic swamping: hybrids replace an obligately estuarine fish
Genetic variation at eight microsatellite loci and the mitochondrial control region of juvenile fish from five coastal lagoons was surveyed to determine the frequency and persistence of hybridization, and its likely consequence for the estuarine restricted A.’butcheri. Expand
Evolutionary impacts of hybridization and interspecific gene flow on an obligately estuarine fish
This study highlights the underemphasized importance of estuaries as sites of hybridization and suggests that hybridization is driven both by opportunity for contact and human activity. Expand
Horizontal and vertical trends in the distributions of larval fishes in coastal waters off central New South Wales, Australia
The data emphasise that the assemblages of larval fishes in coastal waters off central New South Wales cannot be modelled as a single unit, which concurs with the findings in other temperate and tropical vaters. Expand
Intra- and inter-estuary differences in assemblages of fishes associated with shallow seagrass and bare sand
This document summarizes current capabilities, research and operational priorities, and plans for further studies that were established at the 2015 USGS workshop on quantitative hazard assessments of earthquake-triggered landsliding and liquefaction in the western hemisphere. Expand
Predicting the age of fish using general and generalized linear models of biometric data : A case study of two estuarine finfish from New South Wales, Australia
It was found that traditional age-length keys outperformed the predictive models that estimated age from only fish length and location, because the results from the models were prone to significant bias. Expand
