NQ DRY TROPICS/LOWER BURDEKIN WATER LILLIESMERE CREEK FISHWAY DESIGN

Neilly Group Engineering were engaged by NQ Dry Tropics/Lower Burdekin Water, in conjunction with fisheries experts Tenchfisher,to design two rock ramp fishways on the Lilliesmere Creek system in Ayr, Queensland. The fishways were required to overcome two barriers to fish passage downstream of two vertical slot fishways constructed on Lilliesmere Lagoon to provide continuity to the marine environment. One of the fishways at the interface of Lilliesmere Creek with the marine environment has been constructed as shown in the photograph, with construction oversight provided by Neilly Group Engineering and Tenchfisher.
