The health of native fish in Australia’s Murray−Darling Basin is a vital legacy that we leave for future generations.

Over the past few years native fish in the Murray−Darling Basin have faced tough conditions including widespread drought, reduced water availability and more recently, the effects of intense bushfires.

The Native Fish Recovery Strategy recognises that native fish move, breed and complete their life cycles over Basin-scales. This means that having healthy native fish populations in any given river is dependent on the health of native fish populations in connected catchments.

The Native Fish Recovery Strategy is supporting events in some of its Recovery Reaches, to provide information on the importance of connectivity for native fish. The events are:

Cohuna Celebration and Carp Catch

Fish Release – Ornamental Lakes, Mildura

Webinar – assessing barriers in the Upper Murrumbidgee 

Catch-a-Carp @ Menindee

Upper Condamine Stream Crossings webinar in mid-late June- keep an eye on Finterest Facebook for details.
