Abstract

This project aims to test the effectiveness of systematic culling in discrete areas as a strategy to reduce the density of C. rodgersii to minimise the potential for destructive over grazing, and secondly provide an estimate of the cost of culling areas of reef on the east coast of Tasmania. The culling experiment was conducted by the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies and the Tasmanian commercial and Abalone dive industries in 2011/12.
