‘Let there be fish!” was held at Lane Cove Weir fishway in Sydney, Australia.
The event went pretty well, although several audience members came later in proceedings.
All up we had about 18 people there to hear about the importance of fishways, types of fishways (especially around Sydney), involvement of recreational fishers in improving habitat and supporting fishway construction, and the importance of saltmarsh to fish.
