Mass fish deaths at the Murray-Darling system earlier this year will be the subject of a free public lecture in Orange on Wednesday night.
CSU associate research professor in Fisheries and River Management Dr Lee Baumgartner will examine the situation at Menindee and discuss the likelihood of it happening again.
The lecture is at the Groundstone Cafe in Byng Street from 6pm-8pm.
The lecture is part of a CSU-community partnership program.
Dr Baumgartner will explore the findings of a research panel commissioned by the federal government after the fish deaths at Menindee in 2018-19.
CSU director of external engagement Julia Andrews said Dr Baumgartner had more than 20 years of research experience on fish migration, the effectiveness of fish stocking and the impact of human disturbance on aquatic ecosystems.
Register for the lecture on the CSU website.
