The Western Australian dhufish (Glaucosoma hebraicum) is an iconic demersal species that is endemic to the lower west and south coasts of Western Australia (WA). Information on the critical habitat and distribution of juvenile dhufish, less than two years of age and ca 150 mm total length (TL), was limited to a single study in one area where they have been previously collected. Increasing the knowledge on the habitat types occupied by juvenile dhufish, the distribution of these habitats in the West Coast Bioregion and methods to potentially monitor the annual recruitment of the species are important in their management.
