Fish surveys with Museum and Art Gallery NT continued

Our work with the Museum and Art Gallery NT continued after the big rain event in September. The fish were a little scattered with more room to wriggle away in. But Alas fish were found and it seems that there is great diversity and possible new species. The research team went right up to the central plateau or top rock of Katherine River. There they found a crack in the stone country with a pool to survey in. In the mid-section of Katherine River a billabong adjacent and one in the river was surveyed. Techniques utilised included net trapping, net dipping, drag netting and electro fishing.
