The Native Fish Recovery Strategy is well into its implementation phase and to help track the progress of activities a report card has been developed.
The Strategy has a 30-year horizon to 2050, with 10-year implementation stages that aim to achieve four broad outcomes:
- Recovery and persistence of native fish
- Threats to native fish are identified and mitigated
- Communities are actively involved in native fish recovery
- Recovery actions are informed by best available knowledge.
The report card provides regular updates on status and progress, grouped by the 5 Actions and in the context of the 4 Outcomes (see list above).
The Q2 2021 Report Card includes the following key areas of progress:
- Establishing a Recovery Reach Program (Action 2) is well underway with planning and implementing of recovery reach activities underway, led by Recovery Coordinators.
- Coordinated native fish education and awareness activities have begun on the Finterest website and social media.
- An Interim Emergency Response Plan (Action 3) has been endorsed by the steering group, though no applications for funding have yet been received.
The report is available online in a web-friendly format for both desktop and mobile contexts, with a PDF download available for viewing on a single page and/or printing.
