Working together to protect Taungurung country

The North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) has partnered with Parks Victoria and Taungurung Land and Waters Council (TLaWC) to protect and manage Taungurung Country. The project included three days of targeted training on alpine ecology and on-ground weed control on alpine peatland complexes across Mt Buffalo National Park.


Upper Murray fish habitat recovery works video update

Partnerships with local fishers and fishing organisations have been vital to projects supporting the recovery of the habitat and fish stocks in Upper Murray waterways including Cudgewa Creek and Nariel Creek. Two new videos provide an update on both projects.

 

Cudgewa Creek fishway construction

Construction of a fishway on Cudgewa Creek at Tintaldra has been completed. The Victorian Government is supporting the North East CMA with $3.25 million in funding over two years from 2020-21 through the Government's Capital Stimulus Building Works package to undertake recovery works, including the Cudgewa Creek Fishway project, in response to the 2019-20 Eastern Victorian Bushfires.

Fish recovery in Nariel Creek

Electrofishing has determined the strength of fish recovery in Nariel Creek following the 2020 bushfires. Brown trout, Murray cod and native galaxias were found. The Australian Trout Foundation worked closely with the Victorian Fisheries Authority to restock the area.
