FISH SCREENS AUSTRALIA

Making technology accessible

Fish Screens Australia is an information hub featuring the latest information on screening, from fisheries, university and industry experts.

It’s built on strong science, real collaborations and the determination to create a sustainable future for agriculture and fishing.

The goal is to raise awareness of best-practice screening technology, by getting the right information into the hands of Australian water users.

Together we can create a multi-billion dollar industry to boost regional economies.

MODERN SCREENS

A better way to access water

Water users need a reliable supply of water, but waterways are full of sticks, leaves, animals and other debris. This gets sucked into pumps and diverted down channels.

The problem is, most gravity-fed channels are not screened and the majority of pumps currently use traditional screens that are not as effective as they could be.

Modern screens are self-cleaning, low maintenance and engineered for performance. They reduce the need to back-flush lines, replace filters and clear sprinklers.

Any diversion can now be screened effectively. The key is to reduce the velocity, but not the volume, of water entering the intake.

THE BENEFITS

Better farming

Modern screens provide cleaner water. This means more efficient water-transport and irrigation technology can be used. Farmers can grow more using less.

Better fishing

Modern screens can reduce losses of native fish by 90%. They mean other conservation efforts are not wasted. More fish means better fishing.

Stronger towns

Modern screens help keep money in local towns. They can save farmers money, create manufacturing and retail jobs, and boost tourism.
