"Ponded pasture establishment has occurred for over 20 years in Central Queensland. The use of ponding banks to store water has enabled increased pasture productivity and length of growing season. In recent years commercial fishermen and members of the Wildlife Preservation Society have raised environmental concerns over the construction of ponding banks and development of ponded pasture. This came to a head after a field trip to visit ponded pastures north of Rockhampton in late 1990. As a result of this trip which involved staff from the Department of Primary Industries, the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service, the Wildlife Preservation Society, commercial fishermen and the University of Central Queensland it was suggested by Mr Richard Grimes, Q.NPWS Regional Director, that a forum be convened to discuss the issues involved. The site chosen was the University College of Central Queensland, the workshop being organised by Dr John Parmenter from the Biology Department."--Backround.
