Data from: When and where are catfish fat fish? Hydroecological determinants of energy reserves in the fork-tailed catfish, Neoarius graeffei, in a tropical intermittent river



This dataset is part of the National Australia Environmental Science Program (NESP), northern hub led by Professor Michael Douglas. The data were collected as part of a project examining the Environmental Water Needs of the Fitzroy River (Martuwarra). The river is located in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia. Data were primarily collected by a field team led by Dr Leah Beesley as part of the NESP, but some body condition data were collected by other researchers as part of the FARWH (Framework for the Assessment of River and Wetland Health).
