The Healthy Russell River – Downstream of our Lonnavale Hatchery

Once again, an independent biomonitoring report into our Lonnavale freshwater hatchery has indicated the Russell River, downstream from the hatchery, remains in good condition with characteristics of a “relatively clean-water environment” (summary, page 2).

All three sites were rated in the Good condition category for algae (against the AUSRIVAS assessment protocol).

The report went on to state that “there was minimal evidence for impacts (of the hatchery) on the health of the macro-invertebrate fauna and algae growth downstream”.

You can read the full report here.
