Fish and crayfish

Matt Beitzel (Aquatic Ecologist, ACT Government) and Michael Hammer (Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory) are the fish experts on the ACT Bush Blitz.

Matt and Michael will be in the field lab from 11am to 1pm. Visit them to:

  • see live fish and crayfish, and learn about the features used to identify them
  • observe/participate in a crayfish dissection, to examine their internal features
