Six Acanthopagrus australis (338–687 g) were captured via hook and line approximately 15 km upstream from the mouth of the Georges River estuary in NSW, Australia (33.977° S, 151.036° E) in late May 2011. Range: about Ulladulla, NSW to Shark Bay, WA; overlaps with range for Yellowfin Bream which is found from about Townsville, Qld to the Gippsland Lakes, Vic. Results and Discussion. Samples of the estuarine-spawning teleost Acanthopagrus butcheri were collected from nine estuaries and a coastal lake, located in the Pilbara and South-western drainage divisions of Western Australia and distributed along a coastline covering a distance of nearly 2,000 km. Hydrodynamics, vegetation matrices of macroalgae and seagrass and the presence of epiphytes on vegetation explained spatial patterns in taxonomic biodiversity, multivariate assemblage structure and the occurrence of juvenile black bream Acanthopagrus butcheri, a species that possesses ecological traits common tomany demersal estuarine fish species. ABSTRACT: Acoustic telemetry was used to document patterns of movement by black bream Acanthopagrus butcheri (Munro, 1949) throughout Australia’s largest estuary, the Gippsland Lakes. The spectral absorption characteristics of the visual pigments in the photoreceptors of the black bream Acanthopagrus butcheri Munro (Sparidae, Teleostei), were measured using microspectrophotometry. Range: about Townsville, Qld to the Gippsland Lakes, Vic. Catching and tagging Acanthopagrus butcheri. Most abundant in river mouths and estuaries (Ref. Habitat utilisation and movement of black bream (Acanthopagrus butcheri, Munro 1949) in an Australian estuary / Jeremy S. Hindell, Gregory P. Jenkins and Brent Womersley Dept. The two species look similar but can be distinguished by their colouration. It found inconsistent effects across estuarine regions, diel periods, and seasons for each estuary. Often difficult to distinguish from the Black Bream, Acanthopagrus butcheri. Common within estuaries and lower parts of rivers throughout southern Australia, from New South Wales through to the Murchison River in Western Australia. Within each system they will typically reside around the upper estuary/lower rivers through summer months (generally in the vicinity of the salt wedge – brackish areas), and moving downstream with winter flows; following the salt wedge and with smaller individuals likely pushed downstream with higher flows. A. butcheri is thought to be the only truly estuarine sparid in Australia and can tolerate a wide range of salinities, from 3 to 4 to hypersaline waters.

Chin and belly are usually white and fins are dusky to greenish black. Studies of the interrelationships between estuarine dependent fauna and environmental conditions have attracted much attention because of the physiological and/or behavioral adaptations to the unstable environment. 41299). Acanthopagrus.butcheri avoided areas wherein large proportions (>20%) of the available habitat was occupied by hypoxia, instead favouring those with <5%. The study revealed that detection of A. butcheri was significantly influenced by hypoxia, habitat complexity, salinity and flow, while the operation of the oxygenation plants did not significantly influence A. butcheri detection. The upper body can vary from silvery to golden brown, bronze, green or black depending on habitat. A good example of this is found in Western Australian with the trial restocking of the key recreational species Black Bream (Acanthopagrus butcheri) in the Blackwood Estuary near Augusta.
