From 2008-2011 Infofish collected data that would underpin the development of the Crystal Bowl and the first forecasts were made in 2011. Forecasts focused on fish sizes, catch rates, trends in stock and recruitment. The forecasts and the process for making the forecasts are continually being refined and improved.
Gladfish ran from 2011-2014 and collected data on recreational catch and effort through boat ramp surveys (including the Boyne Tannum Hookup competition), fish movement and growth through tagging, fish health issues through photographing catch and views on recreational fishing through a social survey.
Fish recruits are considered to be sensitive to environmental factors and fish health issues so Bream recruitment was selected for the development of a fish indicator. Infofish has been working with GHHP on the development of an indicator in 2015 and 2016.
From 2001-2008 Infofish managed the Released Fish Survival program for the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation. The program involved a $7.3m investment in research and education projects that resulted in survival rates being determined for 30 key recreational species.
