Clare Weir Fishway

The Clare Weir Fish Passage Project

  • Assessed the impact of Clare Weir, built in 1980 on the Burdekin River.
  • Outlined options for providing passage past the weir and monitored the success of the fishway that was constructed at the site.
  • This project produced two reports, one that demonstrated the negative impact the weir had on fish communities, outlined the requirements of fish to migrate within the system and provided options for the successful provision of fish passage past the weir and a second post construction report which detailed the assessment of the fishway that was installed on the weir
