Whilst the seas around Australia are inhabited by well over two thousand distinct species of fishes, the freshwater rivers are the preserves of a hardy few, only about kinds in all the continent, if we exclude introduced forms, such as trout, and occasional stragglers into freshwater, like gobies, soles, stingrays, toadoes, anchovies, and other estuarine by: Biography.

Paul Humphries is a fish biologist, river ecologist and lecturer with 25 years’ experience in research in many parts of Australia. Paul has studied myriad aspects of the ecology of freshwater fish, including the early life history of fishes and relationships between fish ecology and river flow, as well as the history of science in Australia and elsewhere.

Freshwater Fishes of North-Eastern Australia provides details of the ecology, systematics, biogeography and management of 79 species of native fish present in the region. It includes detailed information on their identification, evolutionary history, breeding biology, feeding ecology, movement patterns, macro- meso- and micro-habitat use, water quality tolerances, conservation.

The Australian Freshwater fishes and rivers of Australia book Fish Guide is an invaluable reference for any angler who fishes in freshwater, wanting to identify their catch. It contains detailed descriptions and accurate illustrations of each fish, as well as information on distribution, biology, fishing tactics and also includes all the rigs and hints on how to catch them as well.

The abstracts in this chapter begin with a comparison of allozyme variation in blind troglobitic forms versus full-eyed epigean populations of a Mexican tetra fish (Astyanax mexicanus), and they conclude with a recent examination.

The lowland reaches of rivers are low gradient and turbid and support a high diversity of fish species, many of which are migratory within fresh water or require access to the sea. PNG is the largest producer of freshwater fishes in Australasia, with an estimated production of 17, t year −1.The Tasmanian giant freshwater crayfish (Astacopsis gouldi), also called Tasmanian giant freshwater lobster, is the largest freshwater invertebrate and the largest freshwater crayfish species in the world.
