Native Fish Recovery Strategy – World Fish Migration Day Activities
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 largely dependent on the health of native fish populations in connected catchments. The Strategy calls for investment in actions that complement state activities and maximise outcomes at local, regional and Basin-scales through coordinated efforts.
The Native Fish Recovery Strategy has a vision to recover native fish for future generations. The Strategy has four broad outcomes:
- Recovery and persistence of native fish
- Threats to native fish are identified and mitigated
- Communities are actively involved in native fish recovery
- Recovery actions are informed by best available knowledge
