Edition 34: Bringing Back Native Fish

Edition 34 of RipRap is on ‘bringing back native fish’, and contains 60 pages of great articles featuring fish related science, on-ground works, oral history and community engagement from across Australia. It is a wonderful, uplifting edition, great to hand out at conferences, workshops and field days, as well as to have in the tea room at work, and as a reference document on what is happening ‘fish-wise’ in different parts of the country. – Siwan Lovett, Editor
