Fishers monitoring fish in the Namoi River

Fishers monitoring fish in the Namoi River

For the past 8 months, fishers along the Namoi River and its tributaries have been logging their fishing
expeditions and recording total catch and fish size and health. Data collected so far shows apparent ‘hot
spots’ along the Namoi River, particularly in the Boggabri area, where local fishers have been catching high
numbers of native fish and fewer introduced species like carp. Waterways in the Boggabri area have some
good remnant habitats that are being linked by rehabilitation efforts of landholders, Council, Local
Aboriginal Land Councils and the Livestock Health and Pest Authorities. This monitoring program is part of
the Namoi Demonstration Reach Project.
