Northern Barrier Marine Life (OBIS Australia)
“Northern Barrier Marine Life” located in Cairns has been collecting fish for the aquarium trade since the mid 1990’s (electronic records are only available since May 2006). A number of reefs are visited regularly throughout the year for targeted collections, and records are summarized by Collection Trip. For each Collection Trip, fish species collected at each reef are recorded. Multiple collections from the same reef on the same trip are not recorded. The collection location is given as the centroid for the reef. Fish taxonomists Gerry Allen and Jack Randall are consulted to resolve taxononomic discrepancies.
