Lead Agency: Jeremy Huddlestone

End Date: November 2019

Status: Completed

Aims and Objectives:

Whilst the urchin harvesting subsidy has been very effective in encouraging divers to target Centro in the northern and central parts of the east coast, the southern extremities of Centro distribution have not been harvested to any significant extent. This is largely because they are not plentiful enough to be commercially attractive to harvesters. It may be a more effective migration strategy to encourage targeted culling of Centro along the coast between Lagoon Bay and Cape Pillar. This project is a trial to determine the cost effectiveness of targeted culling as an alternative means of mitigation with a view to potentially initiating cullin in other sections of the east coast.
