Title: Quantitative interpretation of fine-scale southern bluefin tuna catch per unit effort for south-east Australa (FRDC project no. 93/077) 1993-1999
Id: 1217
Acronym: Fine-scale southern bluefin tuna catch per unit effort for south-east Australa
Investigator(s): Vincent Lyne
CSIRO Oceans & Atmosphere - Hobart [details]

Description: Project objectives: to conduct quantitative exploratory analyses of how catch rates of Southern Bluefin Tuna (SBT) are affected by environmental factors, such as temperature patterns and water depth, for the region south of Tasmania up to the southern half of New South Wales. The selection of environmental factors is to be guided by analysing the collection of Observer Reports, from Australian observers placed aboard Japanese fishing vessels, to determine the environmental indicators and their importance in targeting operations and catch rates. Variations of catch rates and size of SBT with time are to be assessed in relation to indices such as the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) for regional changes in water masses, and in relation to local variations in the patterns of water mass distribution.
