An online program is now available for the International Conference on River Connectivity (Fish Passage 2018). Please note Peter Ebenwaldner will be presenting a paper on Fish Exclusion Screen Infrastructure at 130pm Tuesday 11th Dec under the heading: Fish deterrents and screen designs The full program is available here: http://fish-passage-2018.p.asnevents.com.au/days/2018-12-10 We hope to see you there.
A discussion paper has been released on Fish Exclusion Screens: What are they? How do they work? What options are currently available? Will a standard Trash Screen suffice? What are the main design considerations? Do they benefit Aussie Irrigators? Will they assist Australia’s Native Fish Recovery Strategy? The full report is available here:
“An Australian-first will save thousands of native fish from bring trapped in an irrigation channel in North Central Victoria.”
