New Paper: The impact of food availability on snapper

A new paper titled ‘The use of food resources by 0+ snapper, Chrysophrys auratus, from northern Spencer Gulf, South Australia‘ investigates the availability of food as an important factor in survival and growth of juvenile fish.

Professor Bronwyn Gillanders

Food is proposed to play a major role in shaping the patterns of distribution and abundance of snapper in New Zealand and Japan, and this study aims to investigate this hypothesis using data collected from the northern areas of the Spencer Gulf in South Australia.

The paper involves Environment Institute members Richard Saunders (also of James Cook University) and Bronwyn Gillanders as well as Anthony Fowler (South Australian Research and Development Institute) and has been published in Marine and Freshwater Research.
