The Vulnerability Assessment project includes the following fish species:
- Bonito (Sarda australis)
- Dolphinfish (Coryphaena hippurus)
- Spanish mackerel (Scomberomorus commerson)
- Spotted mackerel (Scomberomorus munroi)
- Yellowtail kingfish (Seriola lalandi)
The project also includes co-funded PhD research on kelp forests under climate change supported by Southern Cross University.
