Abstract

[Extract] Experiments were conducted in northern, central and southern Queensland to investigate the effects of hook design and size on the incidence of hooking injury, and the effects of a number of factors, including barotrauma-treatment method, on post-release survival rates of a suite of key reef-associated demersal fish species of particular importance to Queensland's reef line fishery. The key species examined were common coral trout (Plectropomus leopardus), redthroat emperor (Lethrinus miniatus), crimson snapper (Lutjanus erythropterus), saddletail snapper (Lutjanus malabaricus), red emperor (Lutjanus sebae) and spangled emperor (Lethrinus nebulosus).
