Abstract

The West Coast Demersal Scalefish Fishery (WCDSF) includes a complex of mostly line based fishing operations by commercial, charter and recreational sectors. Approximately 100 species are caught in the fishery each year, with fishers each sector primarily targeting West Australian Dhufish (Glaucosoma hebraicum) and Pink Snapper (Pagrus auratus). Substantial catches are also taken of other species in this suite, such as red throat emperor (Lethrinus minitus), Bight Redfish (Centroberyx gerrardi) and Baldchin Groper (Choerodon rubescens).
