Trail camera video systems: investigating their utility in interpreting patterns of marine, recreational, trailer-boat fishers’ access to an offshore Marine Park in differing weather conditions
When monitoring marine recreational fishers at sub-bio-regional scales—for example those who are accessing a Marine Park—on-site sampling is often required. This poses various logistical challenges,
Thermographic cameras reveal high levels of crepuscular and nocturnal shore-based recreational fishing effort in an Australian estuary
Although recreational fishing at night is a popular activity, crepuscular and nocturnal fishing effort and catches are often unaccounted for in fisheries assessments. Here, we present a method for


Long-term monitoring of boat-based recreational fishing in Shark Bay, Western Australia: providing scientific advice for sustainable management in a World Heritage Area
The study demonstrated that monitoring of the recreational fishery within Shark Bay provided both immediate and longer-term data on the responses by recreational fishers to changes in management, producing information necessary to assess the effectiveness of management measures that were introduced and to modify these as required.
Expanding Aerial–Roving Surveys to Include Counts of Shore-Based Recreational Fishers from Remotely Operated Cameras: Benefits, Limitations, and Cost Effectiveness
A pilot study was conducted in Perth, Western Australia, from April to June 2010 to test an expanded aerial–roving survey design that incorporated remotely operated cameras, highlighting an afternoon peak as well as some nighttime activity, which is rarely captured in existing survey designs.
Spatial and temporal patterns of recreational angling effort in a warm-temperate Australian estuary.
Among the critical issues for the management of estuarine fish resources is the need to adequately identify the extent of use by recreational fishers, and the allocation of the resource between
Shore-based Recreational Angling in the Rottnest Island Reserve, Western Australia: Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Catch and Fishing Effort
The Rottnest Island Reserve, located off southwestern Australia, is one of the most popular recreational fishing locations in Western Australia. In the reserve, standard Western Australian
Comparison of recreational harvest estimates provided by onsite and offsite surveys: detecting bias and corroborating estimates
We compare estimates of recreational harvest provided concurrently by two fundamentally different survey designs: an offsite panel survey and an onsite aerial-access survey. Aerial-access estimates
Spatial patterns of fishing effort off San Diego: implications for zonal management and ecosystem function.
The results indicate that fine-scale patterns of fishing effort and exploitation have profound consequences for ecosystem functioning and biodiversity.
Refining and Applying a Maximum-Count Aerial-Access Survey Design to Estimate the Harvest Taken from New Zealand's Largest Recreational Fishery
Abstract We used a maximum-count aerial-access survey design to estimate the 12-month recreational harvest of snapper Chrysophrys (Pagrus) auratus (also known as squirefish) taken by New Zealand's
