Topic: Lower River Murray Fishes: Population dynamics & responses to flooding 2022/23
The lower River Murray (downstream of the Darling River junction) supports a unique assemblage of fishes comprised of species with varying life histories, sizes, and cultural and conservation significance. For all species, however, the river’s flow regime is a key driver of population dynamics (e.g. abundance, demography). I will present results compiled from numerous monitoring and research projects over the past two decades to illustrate patterns and underlying processes of population dynamics for representative species, with a particular focus on responses to widespread flooding in 2022/23.
