About CFFR

The Centre for Fish & Fisheries Research (CFFR) at Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia, was established in 2000 in recognition of a history of sustained and internationally recognised excellence in research and postgraduate training in fish and fisheries biology. Our main aim is to test traditional paradigms regarding fishes and their ecosystems to facilitate their sustainability. Our studies have focussed on the faunas and ecosystems of Western Australia, which have highlighted their uniqueness globally and refined our understanding of key aspects of fish biology and ecosystem function.

The quality of research and postgraduate training is reflected in members of the Centre having published over 600 papers in leading international journals, the receipt of substantial funding from State, National and International sources, and the graduation of almost 100 MPhil and PhD students.
