About the recovery plan
This recovery plan includes all 11 threatened species of Galaxiidae (freshwater fish) in Tasmania, almost half of the 25 Tasmanian native freshwater fish species. It describes the species' biology, distribution, conservation status, threats and the recovery objectives and actions to achieve them over the next five years. The plan replaces the 1997 plan for five species (Crook and Sanger 1997) which has been implemented from 1998–2002. This plan will remain operative until superseded by a revised plan.
The only Tasmanian threatened freshwater fish not covered by this plan is the Australian grayling Prototroctes maraena.
This national Recovery Plan for the Tasmanian Galaxiidae, details the species' distribution and biology, conservation status, threats, and recovery objectives and actions necessary to ensure its long-term survival.
