Factsheet MMCP Collaboration - Understanding the ecological consequences of macroinvertebrate community-structure change

2019-03-01T03:24:42Z (GMT) by Centre for Freshwater Ecosystems
The purpose of this project is to determine the nutritional value of key macroinvertebrates in the Murray River and compare that to the dietary requirements of large-bodied native fish to see if the changes observed in macroinvertebrate community structure in the Murray River have affected fish nutrition. If they have, there may be a need to refocus management interventions away from those targeted directly at large-bodied native fish, and more towards those that focus on their prey items.
