Dear All,
next week we will be at Wonga Wetlands, Albury, finishing up our Native Fish Information Day. The day runs from 11am-3pm and lunch will be provided (including veg fare). this is a fishy info day; let's start with some info about one of our favourites: Murray cod (some basic, easy stuff to start off with) then: so we know that cod (& others) need snags & cod (& others) like to move around a bit: what are we doing to support that? and that can then link to: "What other projects are we doing around this part of the world to support native fish?"
