Fish Habitat Forum this month

FISHERS wanting to learn of projects to improve fish numbers are invited to attend a free Fishers for Fish Habitat forum on Sunday 19 May.

NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Conservation Manager, Liz Baker, said the
event aims to raise awareness of issues affecting fish numbers and the potential to
improve local fisheries through improving habitat.

“The forum will have a strong focus on what fishers are doing and can do, to improve local
fish habitat,” she said.

“In particular, we will be talking with fishers about their concerns about their local fish
habitat and how we can inspire others to get involved.”

The forum will be held at the Glenlyon Dam Tourist Park, located just over the border of
NSW in Southern Queensland.

The forum is funded by the Murray Darling Basin Authority through the Native Fish
Strategy. The Glenlyon Dam Tourist Park is located on Glenlyon Dam Road about 90km from Stanthorpe and 65km from Texas via the Stanthorpe-Texas Road, and 65km from
Tenterfield via the Bruxner Hwy.

“This is free and a great opportunity to meet others who love fish and fishing,” Liz Baker

The forum is an informal event, starting with breakfast at 8.00am and finishing before
lunch. Registration is required for catering purposes. To register to attend the forum, call or text 0429 300 486, or email
