A single database has been implemented to store catch sampling and targeted research data collected since the late 1990s. In addition, data for key species e.g. striped and bastard trumpeter, has been uploaded from historic data bases to provide a complete dataset for the key species. Commercial catch sampling plus opportunistic collections of key scalefish species provide size and age structure information for catches. Where feasible additional biological information e.g. sex and reproductive status is collected.
Black Jew fish in the Northern Territory and Banded Morwong and Bastard Trumpeter in Tasmania have been tagged with acoustic tags and tracked using VR2's (presence/absence data) and VRAP (triangulated positional data) (Tas fish only).
