This study builds on previous research by co-author Dr. Ron Thresher of CSIRO, who focused on the potential of using fish "hard parts" like otoliths, as well as deep sea corals, to better understand environmental change.

In a continuation of this research, the team will focus on fish with high commercial value in order to determine what environmental factors drive fish growth.
"Any change identified in growth and age maturity, especially of commercially-important species, clearly has implications for forecasting future stock states and the sustainable management of fisheries," said Dr. Thresher.

Profile : Ron ThresherResearch Scientist
Ron is a marine ecologist with diverse interests, ranging from effects of climate on recruitment variability of inshore fish and crustaceans and management of invasive species to use of deep-sea corals as indicators of paleo-climate and oceanography.He got his Ph.D. in fish behavior and ecology at the University of Miami, and did post-doctoral work at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and the University of Sydney.He joined the Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in 1983.He was the foundation head of the CSIRO Centre for Research on Introduced Marine Pests (CRIMP) and since 1997, he has lead a project aimed at developing genetic technologies for controlling introduced pest species (with a particular emphasis on carp).He has had a long interest in the use of the chemical composition of otoliths ("ear stones") in fish as possible markers of their movements and ecology, and recently broadened that interest to include analysis of the similar composition of deep-sea corals as indicators of long-term changes in ocean conditions and its implications for both understanding climate variability, the biodiversity and ecology of marine organisms and the viability of deep-sea reef communities.

One of these scientists, CSIRO's Dr Ron Thresher, has warned that if we continue to ignore the situation, Australia's deep-sea reefs could disappear within 50 years.

"Our analyses strongly suggest that Australia's deep sea coral reefs are at a high risk of extinction. They are basically the meat in a sandwich," says Dr Thresher, from CSIRO's Oceans and Atmosphere Flagship in Hobart.
"A high priority would be to identify these refugia, within Australia and outside, identify them, and put some sort of protection around them so that in future these might be sites where the reef might survive even if where they're currently surviving isn't viable," Dr Thresher said.
"Revisiting these stations will give us critical information on the health of the reef and how fast it may be changing", says Dr Thresher.
