SunWater relocates Barramundi stocks

22 Jun 2011

SunWater has again placed its commitment to the environment at the forefront of its operations with a recent fish transfer being undertaken at its Peter Faust Dam.

Due to recent wet weather Peter Faust Dam overflowed for the first time since construction, and a large number of fish were trapped in the restricted access pool with no pathway to the larger dam area.

SunWater arranged to have the fish moved from the restricted access pool into the main dam area to ensure their safety and survival.

Working closely with the Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation and the local fish stocking society, the fish transfer took place over two days.

Relocating the fish into the main dam ensures fish stocks are available for recreational fishing opportunities in the future.

664 Barramundi with an average size of approximately 1m were relocated.

SunWater is committed to providing outstanding solutions for our community in an environmentally sustainable manner.
