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.

 


Alpine Peatlands: a glimpse into one of Australia's most vulnerable ecosystems

Find out more at this new storymap which provides a great insight into Alpine peatlands.

Lower Kiewa Catchment Stewardship survey seeking public input

The North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA), together with RM Consulting Group, are inviting landholders in the Lower Kiewa catchment to share their aspirations for the region via an interactive map and survey.

The closing date for the map and link has been extended a week until Wednesday 22 June. There are two components:

  1. The interactive map allows respondents to pinpoint the locations of challenges, values and opportunities on a map. They can also add comments and pictures and interact anonymously with other pinpoints that other people have included.
  2. The questionnaire survey allows respondents to delve deeper and provide more detail with their feedback.
