Collection Name Description
Assemblage of deepwater fishes This collection represents a number of research project that investigated the assemblages of fishes in deepwater. These projects use stereo-BRUVs to determine the relative abundance and size of deepwater fish. This work was been conducted along the coastline of Western Australia and has produced some interesting results and species.
Assemblages of fish in Albany, Western Australia. This collection consists of a number of research projects undertaken in the waters around Albany, Western Australia, to describe the local assemblage of fish. Much of the work was conducted by undergraduate students for the Field Techniques in Marine Science unit.
Assemblages of fish in the Kumbulua district, Fiji This collection contains information on, and data from research conducted in the Kumbulua district in Fiji that investigated artisanal fishing impacts. The research was primarily conducted by Jordan Goetze during his Honours and PhD and will include stereo-BRUV and DOV data.
Barrow Island Post-Development Coastal and Marine State and Environment Impact Survey Report: Subtidal Demersal Fish Marine post development surveys were conducted to investigate the impact on subtidal demersal fishes on the completion of construction, dredging and spoil disposal programs at Barrow Island.

Development and validation of a mid-water baited stereo-video technique. Pelagic fish are ecologically important to marine ecosystems and a highly valuable resource, yet little is known about the status and ecology of many species. The objectives of this study were to develop and validate a mid-water stereo-video technique as an effective fishery-independent approach to estimate relative abundance and biomass of pelagic fish assemblages.
Effects of tabu harvest duration and intensity on the protection of Fijian fish populations In the Pacific region, periodically harvested marine closures (tabu areas) are the most common form of spatial marine management. This study aims to use stereo-BRUVS, stereo-DOVS and UVC data to examine whether tabu areas are a successful fisheries management tool.
Jurien Bay Fish Monitoring This collection is comprised of fish assemblage data (species abundance and fish length) in Jurien Bay, Western Australia. This research aimed at investigating the differences in fish assemblages inside and outside of a Western Rock Lobster Fishing Exclusion Zone.
Marmion and Shoalwater Cross-Shelf Fish Monitoring This collection contains fish assemblage data collected using stereo BRUVs and DOVs across three reef lines in Shoalwater and Marmion in the Perth Metropolitan region.
Method Comparisons to Sample Fish Assemblages This collection contains research datasets that investigated the difference in fish sampling methods, namely stereo-BRUVs, stereo-DOVs and diver point counts in Guam, Micronesia.
Pelagic baited video sampling of the Oceanic Shoals Commonwealth Marine Reserve A 21-day survey aboard the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) Vessel RV Solander was undertaken within the proposed Oceanic Shoals Commonwealth Marine Reserve (CMR) between the 12th of September and the 6th of October 2012. The voyage, initiated by the National Environmental Research Program Marine (NERP) Biodiversity Hub to guide the Australian Government’s marine bioregional plans, yielded valuable insights into the distribution, abundance and richness of marine species in the remote offshore waters of northwestern Australia. The information gathered in this survey is being used to fill gaps in biodiversity knowledge and patterns of community assembly, associated physical drivers of marine biodiversity and provide a regional context to these patterns and processes.
Stereo BRUV Bait Research This collection contains research datasets that tested different bait quantities and types of baits used in stereo-BRUVs.
