We assess, design, monitor and evaluate waterways to enhance habitat for native fish species. See example…
We have experience in:
- river health assessments see example…
- designing wetlands for nationally threatened species
- monitoring realigned streams, purpose built wetlands and reservoirs
- large woody debris (LWD) habitat improvements
- improving both upstream and downstream fish passage
Replacement of LWD in the Barham River estuary
Barham River estuary has historically been degraded by the removal of LWD. As part of a restoration program 16 bundles of hardwood were placed into the main river channel, near the top of the estuary. Streamline Research assessed the use of the new habitat by fish.
LWD anchorage trials in the Little Yarra River
Primary purposes of the trials was to investigate methods of bank stabilisation. It was also hoped LWD would provide valuable instream habitat. Various anchor methods were tested.
