Western Native Fish Roadshow

FISHOS in Western NSW communities are being encouraged to get involved in protecting inland river systems and native fish stocks as part of NSW Department of Primary Industries’ (NSW DPI) Western Native Fish Roadshow from 7-18 November 2011.

“The fish roadshow gives western NSW communities a unique chance to find out all about native fish and how we can all play our part in protecting their habitats,” said NSW DPI Conservation Management Officer, Rodney Price.

“The roadshow brings together a series of community and school events along the river including in Collarenebri, Walgett, Brewarrina, Bourke, Louth, Wilcannia and Menindee.

“The roadshow coincides with Native Fish Awareness Week, a series of events right across the Murray Darling Basin on native fish, breeding and how we can sustain native fish ecosystems.

“School kids will get the chance to learn all about native fish and healthy habitats, with the roadshow visiting western NSW classrooms. Kids will learn about issues affecting their local river systems and the importance of healthy and sustainable rivers for recovering native fish populations,” said Price.
