Fish and Rivers in Stress: The NSW Rivers Survey
Published in 1997 and quickly out of print, the NSW Rivers Survey was a collaborative project between NSW Fisheries and the CRC for Freshwater Ecology, with substantial support also provided by the NSW Resources and Conservation Assessment Council and the NSW Department of State Development. The survey had five specific objectives:
- study the distribution, diversity and abundance of the nativie fish of NSW
- determine the abundance, distribution and habitat use of carp and other alien species in NSW rivers
- develop understanding of the ecological effects of river regulation, and establish hypotheses for further study of environmental streamflows
- establish and test a standardised predictive model for monitoring river health using fish community assessment
- establish a standardised survey structure for use in other studies.
