Shark depredation in Australian fisheries: Understanding the scope of the issue and identify potential mitigation options

Shark depredation, where a shark consumes an animal caught by fishing gear before it can be retrieved to the fishing vessel, has been nationally acknowledged as an issue for all Australian fishing industry stakeholders. This project aims to define the characteristics of the shark species and populations involved, identify the relevant traits of the fisheries, and assess the potential impacts of shark depredation, to determine ways to mitigate and manage this source of mortality.

The effect of lairage duration on carcase quality, yield and microbiological status

The purpose of lairage is to rest sheep and cattle prior to slaughter, to recover from loading and transport. This project will further develop the findings of a previous pilot study to determine if a shorter time in lairage improves carcase yield, meat quality and animal welfare at a commercial scale.
