Mesoscale movements of small- and medium-sized fish in the Murray-Darling Basin

Modern fisheries management is moving towards an ecosystem approach. The task of sustaining species of economic importance requires an understanding of the environmental needs of these fish and the prey species on which they depend. An aspect of the life cycle of many freshwater fish species is their need to move to different habitats to feed, breed or find refuge from desiccation.
