Past

This project proposes a novel method, incorporating next-generation sequencing of bacterial communities, to unravel complex feeding links between fish and their prey items. The project will focus on key fish species from freshwater, estuarine and coastal-marine habitats in the Alligator Rivers Region in Kakadu National Park. Initial investigations will use barramundi as a test species. The project extends existing NERP and NAMRA-funded research on productivity dynamics and trophic ecology, integrating expertise among partner institutions.
