  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Recorded the prevalence of Kudoa neurophila (a myxozoan parasite formerly known as Pentacapsula neurophila) in relation to age for hatchery reared Striped Trumpeter using histology and PCR testing. Histology and in situ hybridisation techniques were incorporated into the study of the histopathology of the disease caused by this parasite to elucidate its entry point on the fish host and migratory pathway to terminal stage sporulation.

  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Greenback flounder (Rhombosolea tapirina). Larvae were reared in either green water (Tetraselmis suecica) or clear water tanks during short-term feeding trials to investigate the effect of larval culture history, live prey density, and turbidity level on feeding performance.

  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). As the culture of striped trumpeter moves towards commercial scale grow-out, knowledge of the immune system as it relates to disease resistance and vaccination is becoming more important. This study began at the basic level of immunoglobulin (Ig) characterisation and then moved onto the creation of anti-serum, which was used as an immunological tool to investigate the onset of the antibody response in the striped trumpeter. Information recorded included, the characterisation and immune response of hatchery reared striped trumpeter.

  • Data is primarily fish health reports for hatchery reared striped trumpeter (Latris lineata), including issues relating to bacterial (vibrio), viral (particularly noda virus) and parasitic (parasitic copopods and kuoda) infections. Also included is information on the taxonomy and treatment of parasites.

  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Recorded taxonomy of copopod parasites and investigated potential treatments over the lifecycle of two parasites: caligus and condracantha, in hatchery reared Striped Trumpeter.

  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on captive Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Trials were conducted to investigate hormonal induction of spawning using LHRHa and the effects on testosterone and estradiol in wild and captive fish. Data was also collected on the number and quality of eggs, sperm counts and photo thermal data to record the effect on reproduction.

  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Performed morphological histology of swim bladder development in Striped Trumpeter at various ages. Also recorded water temperature, photo period, intensity of light and buoyancy control (in relation to water salinity).

  • This data is primarily benthic invertebrate community information including species abundance & distribution collected by diver coring/grab. Spatial information is available for Huon Estuary and Tasman Peninsula (Nubeena) sites. Associated physical chemical parameters (sediment grain size, redox, sulphide, depth) were also collected and, in most cases, includes spatial GPS references.

  • This data represents research conducted as part of a PhD project on Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Recorded optimal temperatures and lipid levels in diets, protein levels, growth and survival and body composition analysis for post larval striped trumpeter. Also investigated optimal weaning protocol and recorded post larval metamorphosis data.

  • Data is primarily volume of eggs (naturally spawned and stripped) taken from different photo-thermal held brood stock groups of Striped Trumpeter (Latris lineata). Supporting data includes feeding, animal health and weight and environmental parameters (water quality).
