Using Underwater Acoustic Data To Predict the Distribution of Demersal Fish in Western Australia
MetadataShow full item record
This study focuses on helping in the assessment of demersal reef fish distribution in the coast of Western Australia. Models of potential distribution of demersal species were created using biological data form baited remote underwater stereo-videos (stereo-BRUVS) and benthic surrogates based on acoustic data. The possibility of combining optic and acoustic methods to produce a more holistic assessment of demersal fish distribution was also explored.

Spatial prediction of demersal fish distributions: Enhancing our understanding of species-environment relationshipsMoore, Cordelia; Harvey, Euan; Van Niel, K. (2009)We used species distribution modelling to identify key environmental variables influencing the spatial distribution of demersal fish and to assess the potential of these species–environment relationships to predict fish ...
Fitzpatrick, B; Harvey, Euan; Heyward, Andrew; Twiggs, Emily; Colquhoun, Jamie (2012)The implications of shallow water impacts such as fishing and climate change on fish assemblages are generally considered in isolation from the distribution and abundance of these fish assemblages in adjacent deeper waters. ...
The application of predicted habitat models to investigate the spatial ecology of demersal fish assemblagesMoore, Cordelia; Harvey, Euan; Van Niel, K. (2010)Benthic habitats are known to influence the abundance and richness of demersal fish assemblages; however, little is known about how habitat structure and composition influences these distributions at very fine scales.
