Australasian Fishes Project observations used in Redmap report cards

As many of you know, Redmap the Range Extension and Mapping Project, collects observations of many out-of-range marine organisms. Redmap has just released report cards for Australia, NSW, Tasmania and WA. View them at https://www.redmap.org.au/article/report-card/
The data set behind the report cards included records from Redmap, supplemented by thousands of records from the Australasian Fishes Project and Reef Life Survey (https://reeflifesurvey.com/)
I thought you might like to know that this is yet another scientific endeavour that has utilized observations uploaded by Australasian Fishes Project members.
Thank you as always for the time and effort you put into the project.

It is great data , my only contribution to this is regarding Coral Trout. I have seen a couple taken physically in Sydney and this may be caused by the practice of Tsethar https://www.shabkar.org/donation/ . These are readily available in the live fish trade. I maybe completely wrong but it's worth consideration.
Also I have taken a large Notolabrus tetricus at North Head (Sydney) also observing one at Kurnell. The above maybe relevant in these cases to.
Just my thoughts.

Thank you for your thoughts @rick-ludd. I agree with you that Tsethar is responsible for a number of strange sightings. I recall Barramundi being netted live from Sydney Harbour.
