Fish Hotels in Coonabarabran – NSW

May 5 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm AEST

OzFish Fish Hotel Build

Join OzFish for a fish motel demonstration on the Castlereagh River!

The Castlereagh River flows right through town, with its headwaters originating high up in the mighty Warrumbungles.

To tackle on-going issues that the waterway is facing, the Warrumbungle Shire Council successfully applied for a grant from the Commonwealth’s Murray Darling Healthy River program to work alongside organizations to enhance the area.

OzFish Unlimlited worked alongside Warrumbungle Shire Council and identified areas that need re-snagging. We found nice suitable habitat in areas, but other areas were quite bare. The next step is to improve the habitat by adding structure, which is often referred to as “re-snagging” the river.

OzFish are now constructing specific fish hotels which will be installed into the Castlereagh River. Come check them out as part of the Castlereagh River Revitalization Project’s end-of-project celebration!

Registration is essential. We hope to see you there!
