Flow impacts on estuarine finfish of the Gulf of Carpentaria

Our current knowledge suggests that flows of freshwater into estuaries play a significant role in determining the numbers of fish that live there.  This project sought to increase our detailed understanding of how freshwater flows affect some key estuarine species.  This is crucial in manageing water resources in a manner that minimizes negative impacts on estuaries.
