MISA fisheries scientists undertake research on:

  • stock assessment
  • biology and ecology
  • monitoring recruitment and survival
  • analysing fisheries dependent data
  • conducting fisheries independent surveys
  • developing harvest strategy for numerous species
  • evaluating fisheries performance
  • developing bioeconomic models
