Abstract

The current project aimed to provide a comprehensive quantitative understanding of the fishes and crayfishes of the VWWS across the full range of habitats in order to assess the current and future health of the ecosystem and guide effective management decisions and monitoring programs. Given the impact of introduced fishes, the study had a specific simultaneous aim to document, prioritise and control introduced fishes and crayfishes to directly address a major known impact on aquatic ecsystems. Finally, it aimed to provide management recommendations that could be implemented to mitigate the impacts of existing and future introduced species.
