Tender: Recommended Environmental FLOW REGIME for the Lower Ovens under a changing climate

Tender closes 5pm, 18 November 2022

The North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is seeking quotations from suitably qualified organisation or individuals (the Consultant) to update the environmental flow recommendations for the Lower Ovens System (in channel system) and develop environmental flow recommendations for the Lower Ovens floodplain wetland complex. This should be completed using the most recent FLOWS method (DEPI, 2013) as the basis for this work, however the North East CMA are open to novel approaches to developing environmental flow objectives and recommendations that consider a changing climate and future water availability. 

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.

Blue Duck Inn willow removal project underway
