Rewilding the Sea: Shellfish Reef Restoration

Hosted by Alex Gaut

Recent research using historical records concluded that native oyster reefs were a characteristic feature of substantial areas along the South Australian coastline but were eradicated by the middle of the 20th Century.

The State Government has partnered with The Nature Conservancy, a non-for-profit conservation organisation and international leaders in shellfish restoration, to deliver the Yorke Peninsula Shellfish Reef project, which is the first reef restoration project in South Australia and the largest outside the United States.

Our forum will provide explanation and discussion on the project, its rationale, implementation and the benefits that might be expected. There will be short presentations by The Nature Conservancy and PIRSA Fisheries followed by expert panel Q&A and then informal discussion over drinks and nibbles.

AQUATIC HABITAT RESTORATION: MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Hosted by Catherine McMahon

How can our aquatic habitats be more healthy and self-sustaining, and provide expanded habitat for fish and other species?
How can recreational fishers restore habitat and enhance recreational fishing and other water based activities?

Hear from Craig Copeland who has led ground-breaking work in fish passage restoration, wetland rehabilitation, floodgate and acid sulphate soil management and river resnagging.

Craig is the founder of OzFish Unlimited which supports recreational fishers to protect and restore their local fish habitats. Craig won a Churchill Fellowship in 2012 to investigate the motivation of recreational fishers in the US, UK and Ireland to restore fish habitat.

The Estuary Care Foundation SA, which focuses on the restoration and conservation of the Port River and Barker Inlet Estuary, is organising this Science Week event in conjunction with OzFish Unlimited and with the support of a National Science Week SA Community Grant.
