Native Fish Forum 2017 attracts 200 people

The Native Fish Forum 2017 provided a forum for dialogue between scientists, Government and recreational fishers.

OVER 200 people came together in Canberra on 23-24 August 2017 to talk about all things native fish in the Murray-Darling Basin. The MDBA and NSW Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries) co-organised this free event with support from a number of sponsors and supporters.

The theme of the forum was Fish, Flows, Habitat and Heroes. We heard from 38 speakers covering a range of topics including the latest native fish research, rec fishing perspectives, the importance of cultural flows and the challenges of turning science into policy and management. The full book of abstracts is available in the Document Library.

Keep an eye on this page for videos and photos from the forum which will be posted soon.

The aims of the 2017 Native Fish Forum were to:

  • Achieve a broad understanding of the outcomes and progress of native fish research, and adoption of projects and programs, across the Murray-Darling Basin
  • Provide a forum for active engagement between scientists, Government and recreational fishers
  • Provide a vehicle for spawning of ideas to improve native fish outcomes in the MDB, including future priorities for research on-ground and water management.
