Conservation of handfish and their habitats – Annual Report 2019

Conservation of handfish and their habitats – Annual Report 2019
Abstract:

We have completed and analysed performance assessment surveys at nine local population sites for spotted handfish in the Derwent estuary from 2015-2019. To this time series we have also incorporated historic data for individual sites back to 1998. Local populations generally show stability of occurrence but with some difference in abundance (as measured by estimates of fish densities per habitat) by years.
