Citizen science website to collect research data on fish deaths

A public website that will allow farmers and other rural residents to report incidents of major fish kills in rivers across the Murray-Darling Basin has been launched by Charles Sturt University at its Albury-Wodonga campus.

Jonathon Howard, a social researcher at the university’s Institute for Land, Water and Society, said fish deaths were often one of the first visible signs of water pollution and environmental stress.

He said the Fish Kill Map website would allow people to post reports that map the location and date of fish deaths and also upload photographs or local media reports.
