Murrumbidgee River Restoration 2022

In 2022, OzFish Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area (MIA) Chapter, based in Leeton built on previous habitat restoration work and returned a 12km stretch of the Murrumbidgee River into healthy fish habitat by controlling invasive willow trees, installing 15 large woody habitats and restocking the river with Murray cod from Murray Cod Australia. OzFish’s work in 2022 is an excellent example of the Murray-Darling Healthy Rivers Program. Controlling of invasive trees, re-snagging the river, and restocking native fish is creating a healthy and thriving habitat,
