Report summary

Biological monitoring of barramundi involves collecting information from samples supplied by recreational anglers, commercial netters and charter operators.

The biological monitoring program aims to collect length and age information that is representative of the retained barramundi catch. This will be combined with estimates of total harvest and other biological information in future assessments of the barramundi fishery to help ensure the fishery is sustainable.

This results update shows the size of fish sampled between 2007 and 2009 and the length-at-age of fish sampled in 2008.

We thank all those who donate fish frames or assist Fisheries Queensland with the collection of biological information for barramundi.
