Electrofishing

Aquatic Values Surveys and Management Plans

Ecosure was engaged to undertake desktop assessments and field surveys to establish the aquatic ecological values of waterways intersected by a number of our client’s proposed gas pipelines. Field investigations included habitat assessment and collection of physico-chemical water quality data, fish survey (using backpack electrofishing techniques, seine nets, fyke nets and box traps), turtle survey (using cathedral traps and fyke nets), macroinvertebrate sampling (following AusRivAS protocols), botanical inventories and physical habitat assessment. Aquatic Values Management Plans were developed and provided site-specific impact mitigation measures to protect identified aquatic values at each proposed waterway crossing.
