Free event looks at the science behind native fish management

Freshwater fish scientist Jarod Lyon believes it’s an exciting time in the recovery of native fish in north east Victoria.

“I can still remember growing up in the Kiewa Valley in the 90s, where a trip to the river invariably ended with a pile of carp on the bank,” Mr Lyon said.

“Those days are over, and native fish are making a long overdue resurgence.”

Mr Lyon, who leads a research team at the Arthur Rylah Institute will be the speaker at next week’s The Reel Story: The Science Behind Management of Native Fish in North East Victoria.
