Cudgewa fish survey yields signs of bushfire recovery

North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) has partnered with Victoria’s Arthur Rylah Institute (ARI) to investigate the impact of the 2019-20 bushfires on Upper Murray waterways and the fish that live in them.

Researchers undertook electro fishing in the Cudgewa Creek last week to allow fish to be counted and tagged to support studies of the impact on fish migration and breeding areas following the Upper Murray fires.

The work is part of the North East CMA’s Bushfire Recovery Program, funded by the Victorian Government’s Capital Stimulus Project: Restoring Waterways initiative.
