Project Number:

2018-047

Organisation:

Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (QLD)

Principal Investigator:

Julie B. Robins

Project Status:

Current

FRDC Expenditure:

$261,776.73

Objectives

1. To develop a near infrared spectroscopy model that can distinguish between wild origin and hatchery origin barramundi

2. To develop an otolith chemistry model that can distinguish between wild origin and hatchery origin barramundi

3. To compare the results from the models developed in #1 and #2 against an established method (genetics) to distinguish between wild and hatchery origin fish in wild caught barramundi

4. To evaluate and complete a cost-benefit analysis of the approaches developed
