The Fisheries research team provides scientific advice on the status of aquatic resources in the Northern Territory (NT). The team participates in a wide variety of research programs to collect this information and collaborates with regional, national and international partners.
Annual stock status reports for key NT fish species follow a nationally agreed framework. These annual reports are incorporated into the Commonwealth Government’s Status of Key Australian Fish Stocks reports which are released every two years.
See the Status of Key Northern Territory Fish Stocks Report 2014.
