Survey for estuary perch part of honours study

Survey for estuary perch part of honours study

During the second week of August 2015, IFS fisheries officer Paul Middleton and Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) Honours student Bryan Van Wyk surveyed the estuary perch population at Arthur River.

Estuary perch (Percalates colonorum) is a native predatory fish closely related to Australian bass (Percalates novemaculeata). Estuary perch have a reputation on mainland Australia for their hard fighting ability on light tackle when hooked around snags and take interest in various methods of fishing including bait, lures and fly. Thought to be once prolific across northern Tasmania's rivers, estuary perch are currently only known to inhabit the Arthur River on Tasmania’s west coast.

Observation from someone who knows little about the Tassie Fishery.
Was not aware that they were even in Tassie.
 Would appear that they co exist with trout ok.
Cheers
