Come along and learn about some of the common native and introduced freshwater fish of the Yarra Catchment.
The workshop will cover fish ecology, how to distinguish between species and some of the different methods used to survey fish populations. We will also set some traps within the wetlands at the sanctuary to see what fish species reside within them.
