Summer in the Saltmarsh: Learn how to ID. – TAS
December 11, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm AEDT
Up to 70% of our favourite species to fish for use saltmarsh as habitat for at least one stage of their life cycle! These habitats play an essential role in providing nursery habitats for juvenile fish, which you may catch downstream a few years later.
Join OzFish and NRM South at Orielton Lagoon to learn more about Saltmarsh as fish habitat, and to get a progress update on one of Australia’s biggest saltmarsh restoration projects (happening in the Pitt Water-Orielton Lagoon area!). You will learn key skills to identify saltmarsh Flora and Fauna during this workshop, and then get a chance to be a citizen scientist and put those skills to use!
