Crystal Bowl Report

 

A fascinating new project has been exploring novel and cost effective ways to inform management of the Barramundi fishery in the Fitzroy River, Northern Queensland.

 

What makes the "Crystal Bowl" project so innovative is the way it incorporates commercial and recreational fishing data (both tag and recapture information and catches from the Rocky Barra Bounty), as well as recruitment data (also collected by anglers), stocking information and rainfall/flow data to predict future Barramundi stock abundance. Project outputs are then able to be be used by the government and fishers in considering appropriate management decisions, or future fishing plans.
