Prawn hatchery modifications and adaptions for temperate marine fish culture in northern NSW, Australia Aquacultural Engineering (2015)
Marine fish culture is a new farming opportunity for NSW prawn farmers. To address current seed-stock supply issues two Palmers Island brackish-water prawn hatcheries (of Australian and Taiwanese design) were examined for conversion to mulloway ...
Fillet yield, biochemical composition and consumer acceptance of farmed and wild mulloway Journal of Aquatic Food Product Technology (2014)
The New South Wales prawn aquaculture industry is considering alternative species, such as mulloway (Argyrosomus japonicus), to diversify their production base, but little exists on their market potential. Farmed mulloway had higher levels of fat, ...
Economic assessment of an intra-specific cross of silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus Mitchell) for commercial farming Aquaculture Economics and Management (2009)
The native freshwater silver perch, Bidyanus bidyanus, has the potential to form a large pond-based aquaculture industry in Australia, but at present, production is based on genetically un-improved stock. Research for improved growth rate has ...
Heterosis in fingerlings from a diallel cross between two wild strains of silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus) Aquaculture Research (2009)
Cross-breeding was investigated as a strategy to improve performance of the Australian native freshwater fish, silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus Mitchell) through the exploitation of heterosis during the fingerling phase of production. Growth, and mid and ...
Effects of genetic strain and holding facility on the characteristics of alkaline phosphatase and brush border enzymes in silver perch (Bidyanus bidyanus) Aquaculture Research (2007)
The activity of the enzymes located in the digestive tract (pyloric caeca and intestine) in two strains and F1 crosses of the Australian freshwater fish silver perch [Murray River (M) and Cataract Dam (C)] was ...
Ecological structure of assemblages of coral reef fishes on isolated patch reefs Oecologia (1994)
A 9-year study of the structure of assemblages of fish on 20 coral patch reefs, based on 20 non-manipulative censuses, revealed a total of 141 species from 34 families, although 40 species accounted for over ...
Persistence of community structure: what happens when you change taxonomic scale? Coral Reefs (1992)
It is common in community ecology to use the species as the taxonomic category of interest, yet in rich tropical assemblages containing guilds of very similar species this may not be appropriate. Such assemblages may ...

Aquaculture in Regional Australia: Responding to Trade Externalities. A Northern NSW Case Study. Journal of Economic and Social Policy (2014)
Australia’s aquaculture industry is predominantly based in rural coastal regions where it makes a significant contribution to local economies as well as to national food security. Over the past decade changing global economic and trade ...
