Gavin Rees - Fish deaths, Azolla and Water Quality - a history and future prospects for the Broken Creek

  Gavin Rees - Fish deaths, Azolla and Water Quality - a history and future prospects for the Broken Creek
 

Gavin Rees is a microbial ecologist who works at the Murray Darling Freshwater Research Centre in Wodonga, Victoria. This presentation focuses on the extensive growth of Azolla (floating fern), poor water quality and fish deaths which have been a part of the recent life of the Broken Creek in Victoria, Australia. This youtube video will describe the history of the creek, the research that has led to MDFRC's understanding of how the undesirable states occur and the management and monitoring strategies that have been put in place. Gavin will also suggest some long term prospects for its management, especially on the back of the 2012 floods.
