If you see people out on the Lake, creeks and even the ring tank this week (15 April – 19 April) in boats netting fish, taking photos and notes, it will be CCCG members working with aquatic ecologist Kris Pitman and Sunshine Coast Council conducting a fish survey. We have all the proper permits in place and the fish will be returned live to the water once we have catalogued, measured and photographed them. We’re hoping to establish how healthy the catchment environment is for fish which will be a good indicator of the health of the whole system. We will also establish a baseline for future surveys so we can monitor over time anychanges.
We will be starting tomorrow morning (Monday 15 April) at the boat ramp. Westaway Parade, Currimundi.
Thanks to Unitywater, Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry and Sunshine Coast Council for the financial support that made this possible.
