Roach Discovered

The Wimmera’s fish population has enough on its plate with carp, goldfish and gambusia without another pesky invader!

This roach was caught by fish ecologists sampling the Wimmera River to see how well catfish and yellowbelly are going. Roach are native to Europe and Asia but have unfortunately also been found in the Loddon, Campaspe and Goulburn catchments.

Wimmera CMA is trying to track pests in Wimmera waterways including Roach and Carp.
So if you catch a roach or know of a spot where carp are particularly prominent in the Wimmera River please let us know.
