MMCP Collaboration Final Report 2019 - Fish Movement

MMCP Collaboration (MMCP) is a project supported by the Joint State Governments and the Murray-Darling Basin Authority to generate and adopt freshwater ecological knowledge through collaboration, to maintain research capability and contribute supporting science to underpin the Basin-Wide Watering Strategy.

The Fish Movement theme is one of five themes that make up MMCP. This study increased the capacity of lock staff, along the Murray River, to tag fish for automated monitoring, by training them to safely and effectively PIT tag fish.
