The sampling offish and assessment ofhabitat at four sites downstream of the Awoonga Dam in the Boyne River was carried out from 25/02/04 to 02/03/04. This survey was initiated primarily to determine fish assemblages present following release of environmental flows from the Awoonga Dam in January and February 2004 and to classify habitat features at sites. Techniques employed allow comparison with previous surveys and were specifically directed at targeting Mugil cephal is (mullet) and Lates calcarifer (barramundi).
