Fisheries research

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 Australian Government’s status of key Australian fish stocks reports which are released every two years.
