Early life history of Murray cod

Early life history of Murray cod Project team: Paul Humphries (CSU) and Hubert Keckeis (University of Vienna).

Despite being an iconic fish species in the Murray-Darling Basin, we know relatively little about its early life. This project has been following the spawning of adult and drifting behaviour of larval Murray cod since 1998. It aims to explore relationships between environmental variables, such as temperature and discharge, and growth rates and age of drifting larvae and look for intra- and inter-annual patterns.
