Fish flow freely through James Cook Uni

Fish flow freely through James Cook Uni

The completion of a better fishway on the creek that runs through James Cook University in Townsville, Queensland, means that this wet season will see thousands of native fish move freely for the first time in thirty years.

A road built across the creek thirty years ago formed a barrier to upstream migration, and as a result there was a big drop in the number and distribution of native fish species.

A trial fishway, built six years ago, was successful enough to demonstrate the need for something better and permanent.

The new fishway was a joint effort between NQ Dry Tropics, James Cook University and construction companies Abigroup and Seymour Whyte.
