Fisheries science projects help guide decisions on management, policy and compliance relating to Victoria's fisheries. Using this information, we can assess the sustainability of fish stocks to develop and sustain fisheries.
Fisheries science focus areas include: measuring catches, assessing fish stocks and conducting targeted biological research for key fish species. By investing in scientific information, we can grow the value of Victoria's fisheries resources ensuring we have fish now and in the future.
