A flood of juvenile redfin

A flood of juvenile redfin

Floods throughout the central west catchments of New South Wales have brought an unwelcome flush of juvenile redfin, thought to have largely originated from Burrendong Dam.

Local reports of tens of thousands of 35 ¨C 50mm redfin in the creeks and rivers are a major concern given the voracious appetite these fish have for juvenile native fish.

Redfin are limited in range by temperature (preferring a cooler climate) and it is hoped that warmer conditions may reduce numbers over summer.

The upper reaches of sub©\catchments may provide suitable conditions and may extend the range of this noxious fish.

Some adult redfin are evidently managing to over©\summer in the river, as several were found in one town¡¯s public swimming pool after the floodwaters had receded!

Contact the I&I NSW Dubbo Office on 02©\6881 1270 for more information.
