The Department of Primary Industries maintains a database of sighting records of threatened fish species in NSW to monitor the number, location and movements of these important species. You can contribute by reporting your sightings and so help us to better understand and manage the state’s aquatic biodiversity.
We ask for this information so we can contact you if necessary for more details about your sighting report.
The fish information provided here is not subject to privacy conditions. It may be added to our dataset and made available on websites or in publications.
This section is important as it enables us to identify the precise location of your sighting.
Below this table is a Google Map that will allow you to zoom into the exact location of your sighting - when you click on the map the Lat/Long fields below will be populated.
