This protocol manual explains the sampling methods used to sample fish and aquatic habitat in a number of TRaCK related projects across northern Australia. Whilst this sampling protocol has been developed for previous specific projects, it is a useful guide for designing future monitoring programs. The protocol is based on significant prior examination of the suitability of sampling methods across a variety of applications and is intended to provide a relatively rapid and rigorous framework for sampling programs using freshwater fish as monitoring targets.
