Here are just some of the success stories OzFish and BCF have accomplished together:

South Australia–  180 limestone blocks and other in-stream structures installed in the Onkaparinga River. Fish are now flocking to these areas.

Murray River Wetlands – Habitat mapping, school and community education and habitat restoration projects focused on Kings Billabong and Butlers Creek.
Victoria – Installed ‘Fish habitat packs’ consisting of large redgum root balls, rocks, lay down snags and fish hotels installed in the Merri River. Riparian planting also undertaken.
Northern NSW – A focus to revive the ‘Kakadu of the South’ – the Tuckean Swamp, which is now one of the largest and most degraded areas of fish habitat in Australia. Other projects include riparian plantings, school and education programs and oyster health monitoring.
Western Australia – Resnagging in the Canning River to attract Black Bream.

Tamworth – Riparian habitat restored  along the Peel River with a vision of continuous riparian corridor for the once completely denuded river. 
South East Queensland – An oyster shell recycling program has been established and Shellfish Reefs have been deployed in Pumicestone Passage.
