More fish‐friendly infrastructure in place

More fish‐friendly infrastructure in place

Fish access to habitat continues to improve with works to improve fishways, culverts and causeways.

On the Little River, in the NSW Central West, the third barrier to be remediated opens up access to 90 kilometres of the river. This project is a partnership between NSW DPI, Cabonne Shire Council and Central West CMA. For more information contact Sam Davis, NSW DPI, on 6881 1284 or see:

Another troublesome causeway on Dungay Creek Road, near Kempsey on the NSW mid north coast, has also been replaced with culverts. The work was completed despite extended periods of wet weather, and improves both fish passage in the creek and local residentsí passage over it. For more information contact Kempsey Shire Council on 0478 318 770 or see:

It might not be often that boulders weighing up to 4 tonnes are associated with helping fish but thatís what happening at the Sydney Beach weir fishway on the Ovens River at Wangaratta, Victoria. The boulders create resting pools and shelter spots for fish migrating upstream. The placement of large boulders means that instead of working against the current, the fish are able to stop and rest in pools within the channel and then continue on their journey upstream when they have more energy. For more information, contact Anthony Wilson, North East CMA, on 0428 297 880 or see:

As part of the approval to raise Yass dam, Yass Council agreed to upgrade four road crossings on the Yass River which had small pipes and were fish passage barriers. Three of these have now been completed and the design work for the fourth is complete. For more information, contact Allan Lugg, NSW DPI or visit:
