PotterContribution of estuaries to commercial fisheries in temperate Western Australia and the concept of estuarine dependence Estuaries, 10 Cited by: We would like to show you a description here but the site won’t allow more. This is a list of aquatic animals that are harvested commercially in the greatest amounts, listed in order of tonnage per year () by the Food and Agriculture s listed here have an annual tonnage in excess of 1,, tonnes. This table includes mainly fish, but also listed are crabs, shrimp, squid, bivalves, and a soft shell turtle.   Commercial fishermen in Western Australia are pro- Catches are obtained either by locating and then hauling vided by the State Government with return books in schools of fish with nets or by setting unattended gill nets which the daily and monthly summaries of their catch overnight in areas where fish are likely to be caught, and effort have to be recorded.

The estuaries of Western Australia (also known as the Inlets of Western Australia) are located along the coastline of Western Australia.. The coastline can be considered in three main sections: south, west, and estuarine features carry through all three regions. Wetlands and estuaries of the south west region have very similar ecologies and occurrences of biota. Lenanton and Potter () estimated that in temperate Western Australia, estuarine opportunist commercial fisheries were worth $m per annum 7. In Western Australia, these fisheries include Cobbler, Sea Mullet, Yelloweye Mullet, Australian Herring, Australian Salmon and Whiting. In these fisheries are estimated to have been worth. Characteristics of the ichthyofaunas of south-western Australian estuaries, including comparisons with holarctic estuaries and estuaries elsewhere in temperate Australia: a review. Australian Journal of Ecol – The rivers of south-western Australia and south-eastern Africa lie at similar latitudes, open into the Indian Ocean and frequently have estuaries that are periodically closed off from the sea by sand bars at their mouths. The present study has compared the species, genera and families represented in the fish assemblages of estuaries in south-western Australia and temperate southern Africa, i.e.

Estuaries are especially vulnerable to the impacts of climate change because changes in climatic and hydrologic variables that influence freshwater and marine systems will also affect estuaries. We review potential impacts of climate change on Australian estuaries and their fish. Geographic differences are likely because southern Australian climates are predicted to become warmer and drier.
