Freshwater fish study a ‘wake-up call’ for threatened species

Description

University of Canberra Associate Professor Mark Lintermans is rescuing the endangered southern pygmy perch, a fish species less than five centimetres in length.

While the deaths of many thousands of larger fish in the Murray-Darling Basin made headlines earlier last year, Associate Professor Lintermans has been wading through creeks and rivers studying Australian freshwater fish that are threatened with extinction but rarely make the news.
