Maccas breeding for success in the Goulburn‐Broken

Maccas breeding for success in the Goulburn‐Broken
Populations of Macquarie perch in northern Victoria were significantly diminished by the 2009 bushfires
but one small creek is helping them recover. Fish were removed from the badly affected waterways in the
aftermath of the fires and kept for safekeeping at the Snobs Creek Hatchery. These fish have since been
released back into the creeks and researchers from the Arthur Rylah Institute (ARI) are now monitoring the
Macquarie perch population. They found one small area in which the fish were breeding successfully. Now
this crucial location has been identified, the researchers, Goulburn‐Broken Catchment Management
Authority and local Landcare groups will be working to make sure it is protected as much as possible from
future sediment inputs and bank erosion. For more information:
