VIDEO: Fishways in the Warby-Ovens National Park

TODAY’S video is about two exciting, North East CMA fishways projects at the Frosts Crossing Track and McQuades Bend causeways. These two structures are receiving a major overhaul that will restore visitor access to the Warby-Ovens National Park (the causeways were badly damaged due to successive flood events), whilst overcoming two major barriers to fish migration within the Heritage Listed Lower Ovens River.

Funded by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s (DELWP) Environmental Water: Works and Measures Program, North East CMA has been working closely with Parks Victoria, DELWP Hume and local Wangaratta firm Gordon Gibson Nominee’s, to engineer a solution that will benefit both native fish and park users.

Listen as Andrew Briggs (North East CMA), Matthew Jones (Arthur Rylah Institute) and Andrew McDougall (Parks Victoria) explain how the project will unfold. These two projects are part of a broader fishway program in North East Victoria, which takes in four other structures across the region.
