This project has improved understanding of the potential ecological impacts of changes in dry season flow regimes of tropical river ecosystems caused by water resources development in these catchments. The project investigated variation in fish distribution and ecological requirements across a natural flow regime gradient using field sites, and document indigenous knowledge on fish in the Daly River. This information has been used to develop models, based on BBNs, to predict the impact of different water allocation scenarios on freshwater fish in key areas of the Daly River catchment. It has also developed collaborations that will enhance the capacity of managers in the NT.
