Scoping genetic tools, their limitations and applications for wild fisheries management

Project Start: 1 June 2011

Abstract

FRDC has commissioned a review of the role that existing and future genetic technologies may play in addressing critical challenges facing the exploitation of wild fisheries. Wild fisheries management has been assisted by genetic research for over 50 years and in Australia, this research has been largely funded by FRDC. Both fisheries management and the methods of genetic analysis have changed significantly during this time. Given these dynamics, as well as perceptions that communication between fisheries managers and geneticists has been poor in some cases, there is a strong need to reassess the ways in which genetic research can contribute to fisheries and for all stakeholders to critically examine each other's needs and capabilities.
