18 MARCH 2021 | New homes for fish in the Bidgee
In a first for Leeton, essential fish habitat in the Murrumbidgee River was recently installed providing vital habitat for native fish. Volunteers from OzFish and Murrumbidgee Landcare worked together to raise funds and plan and install eight giant snags and several smaller ones. Paul Smith, OzFish Chapter President said, “over the past twenty years, there has been a great deal of restocking, but little has been done in the way of creating the necessary habitat for these fingerlings. “We’ve got to do something to help restore the health of the river instead of simply putting in the fish and hope they will survive.
