Aspects of the life history of skates from southeastern Australia
thesisposted on 2008-01-01, 00:00 authored by Michelle A. Treloar
The age and growth, reproduction and diet of several skate species in south-east Australia were studied. From studying these life history characteristics it was determined that skates have a relatively low productivity and may therefore be at risk of local extinction if increasingly exploited without appropriate management.
