Roper River fish movement study

Better understanding of the spatial ecology of key fish species will contribute to an improved ecological basis for water resource management of large perennial rivers of the Top End. This project aims to provide information on the relationships between river flow and movement responses of barramundi and other key fish species in the Roper River. The information can be used for the development of environmental flow recommendations.

The project is a collaborative partnership between the NT Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Research Institute for the Environment and Livelihoods at Charles Darwin University, NT Fisheries and the NLC managed Yugul Mangi Rangers.
