Participant Information

Thank you very much for your interest in our study.

The intent of this survey is to contribute to our knowledge and understanding of Murray cod mounts and their locations.  

Importantly, if you are not the owner or host of the Murray cod mount, you will need the host's consent to enter information about it before completing this survey.

The information you provide will be added to a Murray cod mount database and may be used or published for purposes that contribute to public knowledge and understanding.  The researcher reserves the right to disclose the information obtained through this survey (e.g., republish location, photo or size of cod).  No personal information will be made public without your consent. If no consent is given, such information will only be kept for the purposes of reference and research.
