Red-finned blue-eye research published

on 09 Sep 2013 

The most recent edition of Marine and Freshwater Research contains a very significant paper for Bush Heritage.

Adam Kerezsy is the lead author on a paper that is the culmination of three years of research investigating methods to remove invasiveGambusia from springs and to re-locate populations of red-finned blue-eye to fish-free springs at Edgbaston Reserve (link to pdf of the paper here - internal use only Kerezsy and fensham 2013).

The paper describes the trials and tribulations, and ultimate success of our work to increase the number of red-finned blue-eye populations at Edgbaston.

While most of our supporters and the general public are more likely to read about the red-finned blue-eye in our newsletter or Good Weekend, the peer-review publishing process is important to ensure our work is scientifically sound and robust, and our methods are validated by the scientific community. Congratulations Adam on this significant achievement.
