Native Fish News from ANGFA

Native Fish News from ANGFA

As you may know, NGT has a strong interest in wetland and waterway conservation and management, and we have particular focus on, and expertise in, the conservation of native freshwater fish (via our Aquasave work). Not only are many species of native freshwater fish threatened in this part of the world, but they are also an ideal indicator of aquatic ecosystem health.

For those of you who are also interested in native fish, a few weeks ago I received a copy of the December Edition of ANGFA News, the newsletter of the Australia New Guinea Fishes Association. A copy of the newsletter can be downloaded here: ANGFA News 51 – December 2013.

This edition includes a summary of the presentations given at the ANFGA Convention in Melbourne last October, including one by yours truly, and two by NGT Committee Member, founder of Aquasave and now curator of fishes at the Northern Territory Museum, Michael Hammer. An image of one of the relevant pages can be found below.
