Abstract

The fish fauna of the Hacking River catchment has been sampled extensively. The objective of this study was to provide a summary of the fish species recorded during surveys previously conducted in this catchment. The primary output of this study is a tabular checklist of fish species that has been compiled from all available published references and from personal observations by scientific staff at the Cronulla Fisheries Centre. A total of 252 fish species belonging to 97 families are listed. This compilation will be a useful resource for scientists, community groups, amateur naturalists, fishers and divers interested in the local fish fauna. The information also provides a useful baseline for future surveys of fish diversity in the Hacking River catchment.
