Dataset: Movement of fish and elasmobranchs in Moreton Bay 2012-onwards


Information was collected on the movement patterns of fish and elasmobranchs in Logan, and Albert River as well as southern Moreton Bay, using an underwater sensor array. Data were collected to assess the long term movement of fish and sharks in the Logan and Albert River with a primary focus on the influence of water flows. Project objectives included:

Acoustic tags with individually unique sound signatures were implanted into 80 teleost fish and elasmobranchs. A network of acoustic receivers recorded and stored the date and time of individual animals, which was used to monitor their movements. The majority of the receivers were based in the Logan and Albert River system, but a smaller number were also deployed within Moreton Bay.
