Connectivity Within Fisheries Species Along The Great Barrier Reef: Genomics and Modelling
- Indicative Funding
- This project will investigate connectivity from economically and ecologically important coral reef fish, Lutjanuscarponotatus (Stripey snapper), along the Great Barrier Reef. A combination of genetic and genomic analyses along with hydrodynamic and biogeochemical simulations of larval dispersal will be used to estimate patterns of connectivity among populations. For the first time, connectivity at both Great Barrier Reef wide and regional spatial scales at a 4 km resolution will be quantified. Results will inform policies for reef managers and fisheries agencies to ensure that management practices achieve their objectives.
