This report describes the results of the 2013/14 monitoring of fish in the Meander River, as required under the Meander Dam Water Monitoring Program (DPIWE 2007). This program describes monitoring activities required to comply with conditions endorsed on the Water Licence and Environmental Protection Notice (EPN) No. 7345/1 issued for the operation of the Meander Dam. Sampling and reporting for benthic macroinvertebrates is now conducted by Tasmanian Irrigation.
As required under this program, sampling was conducted once in spring (25 September) 2013 and once in autumn (25 March) 2014, using a standard fish sampling protocol. Sampling was conducted at two sites in the Meander River – one site upstream and one downstream of Huntsman’s Lake.
Fish data from 2013/14 is compared here to data collected using a similar sampling protocol by DPIWE (DPIWE 2008) from 1994 to 2008, and to data from sampling in 2009/10, 2011/12 and 2012/13, though details of fishing effort for the historic DPIWE data are not recorded.
