Black bream in the Blackwood: 2005-06 recreational fishing creel survey

Beckley, L.E. and Prior, S.P. (2007) Black bream in the Blackwood: 2005-06 recreational fishing creel survey. In: The decline of black bream in the Blackwood River Estuary: is restocking an ongoing requirement? A workshop report, 26 February, Fremantle, Western Australia



The status of the recreational fishery in the Blackwood Estuary, south-western Australia, was quantitatively assessed via a boat-based creel survey from September 2005 to August 2006. Sampling was stratified by both season and day-type and, in total, was conducted on 144 days over the 12-month period. Daily sampling consisted of a count of number of anglers throughout the estuary (for fishing effort), and surveys of catches by boat-based and shore-based recreational anglers.
