Summary

The Rodd’s Harbour Fish Habitat Area (FHA-036) has three historic earthen causeways that may impact aquatic biopassage and the fresh-marine continuum in this coastal wetland system. These anthropogenically created hydrological and fish migration barriers have been identified as a high priority action following the Baffle Creek Catchment Walking the Landscape Workshop. This was held in a partnership between the Burnett Mary Regional Group (BMRG) and the QLD Government, and involving a wide range of scientific, land management and local experts to undertake a detailed assessment of the waterways in the greater catchment.

Benefits

Improving hydraulic connectivity within the wetland, removal of threats to the wetland and tidal flats from vehicle impacts, improving habitat function and connectivity
