Research scientists have begun placing dozens of underwater listening devices around southern Tasmania to monitor shark and fish movements.

The 72 receivers will monitor the movement of specially tagged fish in the Derwent River, Frederick Henry Bay and Norfolk Bay for at least the next 12 months.

About 120 animals are expected to be tagged, including seven-gilled sharks, bream, flathead and Australian salmon.
