Murray Cod and the Rivers

Post by Ross Compe » Thu Jan 10, 2019 7:13 am

One million native fish have perished in a second major fish kill calamity in the last few weeks.A algae bloom and lack of aeration have been blamed for the disaster. :cry: :cry: :cry:
No freshwater eco system and native fishery can survive in this massive blow.
Aquarium plants were removed from the Swan River with terrific results after investigation and action by Western Australian universities.
Water usage and flow remain contentious.
Pumps to add oxygen and circulation will benefit both in short term any water way.
Good luck and thanks from the anglers of Australia who recreate and invest in those localities who are striving to prosper the Murray Cod and those other important native species now decimated.
The Murray was the fish basket to Adelaide with species delivered daily in our colonial years along with the majesty of a paddle ship heritage.
Lots of effort now to address the water flow and irrigation for food producers.
