Abstract

This report evaluates the value of long-term monitoring of ichthyoplankton at selected locations in the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) National Reference Station (NRS) network, and assesses its potential for providing fishery-independent information relevant for marine fishes and their management. This report focused on 3 east coast NRS (North Stradbroke Island, Port Hacking, and Maria Island) due to the availability of comparable historical ichthyoplankton data for this region. Historical data from 8 surveys were used to provide a long-term context to help evaluate the value of long-term ichthyoplankton monitoring.
