Abstract

A field survey of streams was required along the proposed route of the Dilston Bypass for the presence of fish, particularly the Australian grayling (Prototroctes maraena). This species is listed as threatened under both Tasmanian and Federal legislation (TSP Act 1995, and EPBC Act 1999). In Tasmania the species is listed as vulnerable, being widespread but generally low in density in lowland stream reaches, and having experienced a substantial decline in the early to mid 20th century.
A single electrofishing survey was conducted in June 2009 to assess the presence of freshwater fish
