In the wake of three mass fish kills in the Darling River, the Academy has produced a scientific report examining the causes of the disaster.
In three separate events across December 2018 and January 2019, millions of fish—including endangered Murray Cod—died en masse along a 30km stretch of river near Menindee, NSW.
The Academy assembled an expert panel comprising scientists with expertise across a range of disciplines, who found that insufficient water flow was a key factor leading to the fish kills.
Read about the expert panel’s work over the last month and explore their findings and recommendations in the full report.
