Southern Pygmy Perch

Australia has around 300 species of freshwater fish. Many people are aware of iconic species like Australian Bass, Barramundi and Murray Cod, but there a many small fish that deserve our attention. Here is the Southern Pygmy Perch.

Research by ILWS Masters of Philosophy student Luke Pearce aims to help the survival of a tiny native fish once found throughout the southern part of the Murray Darling Basin, and Charles Sturt University is also providing a home for this battler.
