|Title:||Carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) spawning dynamics and early growth in the lower River Murray, South Australia / Benjamin B. Smith.|

|Abstract:||"This thesis extends and summarises Australian data on carp (Cyprinus carpio L.) reproductive biology and early growth. Specifically, it (1) validates the aging of larval and early-juveniles via daily otolith increment counts, (2) provides regression equations to account for shrinkage that occurs upon preservation of young-of-the-year (YOY) carp in 70 and 95% ethanol, (3-4) investigates the timing, frequency and duration of spawning via gonad staging and via a combination of gonad staging and YOY sampling, and (5) investigates relationships between YOY recruitment and nine hydro-climatic parameters, and examines spatial and temporal variation in YOY growth."|
