Improving Fish Passage in Tucki Tucki Creek

 
Google Map
 

Tucki Tucki Creek is a tributary of the Richmond River. A pedestrian walkway within Holmes Park located in the Lismore suburb of Goonellabah was identified by local recreational fishers and regional fisheries staff as being a barrier to fish passage. Sediment in the creek was removed and the barrier to fish passage was replaced with box culverts opening up 2 km of upstream habitat. Revegetation and weed management was also undertaken throughout 100 m of waterway bank around the crossing. Completed in 2011.
