This procurement is part of the new fisheries research projects for the 2018/19 financial year that are not sourced through existing panel arrangements.
The overall objective for this research is to understand and model the effects of environmental variability and change at the scale of decades affecting ecosystem function in the Sub-Antarctic, including effects on protected species (e.g. New Zealand sea lions, Antipodean albatross, yellow-eyed penguins, other sea birds) and on ecologically and economically important fish (e.g. hoki, squid, southern blue whiting), including potential effects on fish abundance, recruitment, and spatio-temporal movements.
