Pest Species Management
Streamline Research has a wealth of experience in the removal of pest species from waterways. We can advise how best to achieve optimal outcomes for pest species removal from all types of waterways from small wetlands to large reservoirs. See example…
A few of the waterways we have cleaned up :
Urban development, Shepparton
VicUrban residential development of Parkside Gardens on the former International Village site at Shepparton. This man- made waterway had been stocked by Victorian Fisheries during the 1990’s. The lake was emptied and redesigned. Carp and other noxious species were removed. Stocked golden perch were captured and translocated to nearby Kialla Lakes.
Patterson Lakes carp removal
The Patterson River Quiet Lakes comprises three interconnecting waterways, Lake Legana, Lake Illawong and Lake Carramarr. High numbers of carp and goldfish required yearly removal of these species between 2000 and 2011. Streamline Research co-ordinated the capture and disposal of fish and introduced estuary perch in 2005 to prey on young pest species.
Gresswell Ponds noxious fish removal
The Gresswell Ponds drain into the wetlands of Latrobe University Wildlife Reserve. Liming of the Ponds has been undertaken on several occasions to prevent the spread of eastern gambusia into waters supporting the nationally threatened dwarf galaxias.
Redevelopment of an urban lake
Landcox Park Lake in Brighton is an urban water that was drained and relined. Carp, goldfish and eastern gambusia were removed. Long necked tortoises were agisted during the redevelopment. Both southern pygmy perch and dwarf galaxias were stocked into the new lake. Large woody debris was placed into the lake for aquatic fauna habitat.
