Artificial reefs are becoming a common fisheries enhancement tool in Australia. My Honours research is in collaboration with UNSW and NSW DPI and I am attempting to understand how the Bluespotted Flathead interacts with the South Sydney Artificial Reef. In particular, I want to understand which parts of the Artificial Reef are used most by the Flathead, are they feeding at the Artificial Reef and how long do they spend at the Artificial Reef. To achieve this, I have fitted a number of these fish with acoustic transmitters, which allow me to monitor their movements.
