  • 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). Visual field ontogeny, behaviour and feeding were recorded along with details of jaw development and malformation. Video images were used to record length, feeding response and histology of eye and jaw development.

  • For hatchery reared striped trumpeter (Latris lineata) data has been collected on length, weight, age, growth, size at metamorphosis, survival in relation to fish density, nutrition, health and system operation (tank size, water volume and quality, oxygen content).

  • 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 collected includes growth, survival, development (swim bladder inflation, flexion, metamorphosis), health, water quality, systems (tank size etc), nutrition (live feeds, lipids, vitamins) for hatchery reared striped trumpeter (Latris lineata).

  • 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.

  • Recorded details of visual field ontology (video images recording feeding response and histology of eye and jaw development), behaviour, feeding and jaw development and malformation in larval striped trumpeter (Latris lineata).

  • 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).

    Physical and chemical parameters at five Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) growing areas in Tasmania - Pittwater, Pipeclay Lagoon, Little Swanport, Georges Bay and Simpsons Bay - were measured as part of a study to determine the carrying capacity of the areas for oyster farming. This has provided valuable environmental data for these areas. The hydrodynamic regimes at each area except Simpsons Bay were studied, including high and low water volumes, flushing rates, flow rates and depth contours. Temperature, salinity and concentrations of nitrates, phosphates, silicates and chlorophyll a were measured monthly at several sites in each area. The change in these parameters over different time scales also was examined at two sites in Pittwater and indicated temporal and spatial variability in the environmental parameters measured.
