Land Use / Management Changes

A relatively large grip system has been blocked; the total length affected is approx. 0.5 km. Low stocking levels are being maintained in the headwaters (habitat regeneration).
  • Change Work carried out % area affected
    Stocking density Spring/Summer 2008 100
    Grip blocking Feb 2008 35
    Total 100
