Stakeholders should be clear about what will be monitored during their program.
While the preceding steps cover what type of monitoring is to be done, there should also be discussion about exactly what information must be collected, and why. Some issues to consider before monitoring begins include:
Who is the information for and how will they use it?
Who will gather the information?
Who will analyse the information?
What type of strategy will be put in place to ensure collected data are promptly fed back (eg to landholders or agencies) in an appropriate and useful form?
FeralFishScan is a community website for collecting evidence of feral fish.
Feral fish (also called ‘pest fish’) cause enormous damage to our rivers and native fish populations. If you have seen or caught feral fish (such a carp) in your local area, record the details here to help identify feral fish hot-spots across our catchment.
You can access FeralFishScan via www.feralfishscan.org.au or download the ‘FeralScan’ App and follow the feral fish prompts
How to record:
Register your Name, or simply record data using your email address.
Record where you have seen myna’s or starlings, evidence, damage, and control actions.
Submit your record, and view it on the website.
View other sightings in your local area.
