Engineered log jams sweet news for fish

Over 300 logs have been used to construct eight Engineered Log Jams to improve fish habitat and river bank stability in the Upper Hunter River, near Muswellbrook, NSW.
The structures are designed to withstand the large floods experienced in this river. The recent works were the fourth stage of an
ongoing project to improve fish habitat in the Upper Hunter River and to provide a more natural approach to treating bank erosion. To date, there have been 9 fish hotels and 33 engineered log jams installed in neighbouring river reaches.

Funds from the NSW Recreational Fishing Trust and the Commonwealth and NSW Government through the Hunter‐Central Rivers
CMA were used to complete the works. The logs themselves were provided by Roads and Maritime Services through the Hunter Expressway Project.
